Kala Stein

Kala Stein’s innovative ceramics is based on archetypal utilitarian forms, like vases, bottles, and cups. By manipulating clay primarily though the slip casting of molds, she creates sculptural silhouettes, which merge multiple forms and planes into a one-off forms. Stein says of her work, “Filtering the forms through abstraction, simplification and a limited color palette allows me to make compositional arrangements that depart from the symbol of the object itself.”

Stein received her Master of Fine Arts at New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University where she currently is a visiting instructor. She shows her work nationally and maintains her home and studio in Canadice, New York.
