New Work by Deana Fisher Wilfong

Each of Deana’s sculptures is unique, yet reflects the universal nature of being human. The central theme celebrates the form, grace and voluptuousness that is the power within every woman. At the same time, both negative and positive are echoed through space and form. Some forms are intentionally cracked as a symbol of the trials we face and the beauty that emerges from those challenges. No two cracks are alike, just as no two bodies are alike. Exposing them is its own beauty. In an effort to reduce any unnecessary impact on rising CO2 levels in our environment, Deana utilizes a process in which her pieces are fired only once at a low temperature. The result is art both raw and refined, much like the duality of humanity itself.
