Barbara Vanderbeck: Sculpture at SFClayWorks


  • Please see website for gallery hours.

SFClayWorks will be featuring the ceramic sculpture work of San Francisco artist Barbara Vanderbeck. An avid traveler, Vanderbeck’s work is fueled by her exploration of decorative motifs and spiritual iconography found through out the world. She loves to play with form, color, texture and pattern. From bold, raw, tribal art such as Asmat or Mauri shields and totems, Hindu temples of Southern India, and the architecture of Antonio Gaudi, Vanderbeck is deeply influenced by the shared symbols, and concepts that link such diverse cultures to the collective unconsciousness. Her rich surfaces are achieved by applying layers of colored slips and underglazes and fired in an oxidation atmosphere. Much of her current focus revolves around designing sculpture for the garden.
