|Artspace - The Artists|
Born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia, artist Tiwi Wood now makes her home in Fresno California. Tiwi holds a Masters Degree in linguistics from Fresno State, where her love for ceramics was ignited while studying under California ceramic artist Jim Shepard. Tiwi creates salt-fired stoneware sculptural and utilitarian works, often with applied and incised animal and floral elements. The forms she creates are traditional, but are constructed with an organic freedom that adds a wonderful asymmetry to the work.
