Rank #7: 020 - Shalene Valenzuela

Podcast cover
Read more
Like pop art icons Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol, ceramicist Shalene Valenzuela transforms mass-produced images and objects into art. Recreating household items like rolling pins and telephones out of clay mutates them from a comforting everyday object to a hollow form, filling the viewer with uncertainty as they realize the object isn't what it seems. The graphic, retro women that cover the domiciliary items are forever trapped in a world of idealized femininity. Listen in as we talk to Shalene about creating art in the round, the magical Montana ceramics community and the ever present fear of a creative block.
