Fierra: Cloth to Clay Sculpture
Like all of Renee’s sculptures, Fierra pushes the boundaries of the medium to an extreme, and is an exploration of feminine energy and emotion, their sources and expressions. The stark finish is a counterpoint to the feminine figure, and speaks to the different parts, often contrary, that make up each of us.

Meet the Artist: Renee Chase

Always wanting to try her hand at ceramics, Renee took a pottery class when, during a demonstration, she heard the word “dart”. At that moment the idea for creating dresses in clay was born. As Renee says: "The common terminology and my passion for materials inspires endless connections between my past as a fashion designer and teacher and my future as a ceramicist."Learn More
