Sonja Hinrichson is a Bay Area artist and immigrant, and landed here 23 years ago for graduate school. Her art background is in video, installation, and photo-based art forms, and she organizes community arts projects that intertwine nature experience and art-making.
“I came to ceramics 9 years ago – out of necessity for a conceptual arts project. And I got stuck in the sticky clay and have since never been able to let go. I throw and hand-build and have been exploring atmospheric high-firing techniques. I teach ceramics for kids and adults at City-run art studios in San Francisco and Oakland. I joined the ACGA about 1.5 years ago, and would like to contribute to the thriving of the larger California Ceramics community through service on the Board.” –Sonja Hinrichson
