A Crowd of Furies

"Sculpting is a love affair with life."

Peggy Snider is a ceramic sculptor living in Santa Cruz, California. Concerned with the human condition, she lyrically combines spirit and matter. Her work has multiple layers of oxides and glazes applied to the clay before each firing. Her technique of using found-object tools often causes people to mistake the clay for wood, stone or metal.
