Luce Artist Biography

Nancy Selvin studied with Peter Voulkos at UC Berkeley, where she focused on the color and form of her pieces, rather than their function. She uses images of books, bottles, and teapots in her ceramic sculptures, exploring the surface design and arrangement of the forms. She sets up a tension between the object and its image by placing these ceramic representations of functional objects in a "real" tableau, or setting.
