Irvin Tepper earned degrees in both ceramics and sculpture, and has worked with drawing, photography, and video art. The artist favors porcelain for his sculptures because of its fragility and translucency. Since 1975, Tepper has been interested in how teacups bear witness to many conversations. He shows them as cracked and fragile, worn out from the years spent listening to and absorbing a range of human emotions.
