Intro
“I am constantly making tests and find understanding my craft and materials exciting and necessary to allow myself mental freedom, similar to improvisation in music and dance. I feel that without good craft skills and material understanding, you cannot be free to create what you want to make.”

Artist list

Dorothy Feibleman
New works in porcelain: lotus series, an installation 

Dorothy Feibleman is an American artist who lives in London and spends part of the year in Japan. Her delicate, intricately patterned ceramic forms only hint at the complex and highly technical work that produces them. Using her own technique of nerikomi, she laminates together porcelain in different colours, or different porcelain bodies, and allows their chemical and structural properties to determine the ultimate design. In these extraordinary translucent forms, surface and structure are one. Feibleman has also used her deep understanding of clays and other firing processes to develop porcelain and other products for industry. 

“I am constantly making tests and find understanding my craft and materials exciting and necessary to allow myself mental freedom, similar to improvisation in music and dance. I feel that without good craft skills and material understanding, you cannot be free to create what you want to make.” Feibleman’s work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Wisconsin, and many other important public and private collections in the USA, Europe, and Japan.
