We are pleased to welcome to our consignment gallery the functional ceramics and jewelry of Erin Paradis.
Erin is best known for ceramic sculptures exploring her interest in physical spaces, materiality, and emotive language. Her functional pottery and jewelry are infused with the similar visual language of color and form found in her fine art pieces. Stop by the Art Center to explore the work of Erin and the other Minnesota Makers.
My work is a recollection of encounters I have had with seemingly ordinary structures, spaces, and objects in my daily life – Erin Paradis
Erin is a ceramic sculptor, living and working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She received her MFA from the University of Minnesota and her BFA from the NYSCC at Alfred University. She has worked extensively as an artist, resident, and instructor at art centers and academic settings both nationally and internationally.
