Red Lodge Clay Center – Short-Term Resident (AIA) 2022
Stephanie Rosendorf is an artist (and former creative director from the publishing world) who loves to bring a bit of unexpected beauty and joy into people’s lives and their surroundings through my ceramic art. You can most often find her happily working in my studio in Atlanta—alongside a cantankerous feline named Moo— or at her favorite community art center, Callanwolde Fine Arts. Or out hiking and cycling in nature. Or wandering around the world with her soulmate, visiting museums and eating too much food.
Working mostly with delicate porcelains and the occasional rustic earthy clay, I create decorative and sculptural art inspired by nature: flowers • forests • plants • fungi • botanicals • animals • oceanic life • the earth’s landscape … and influenced by dreams and hazy memories floating just beyond the grasp of the conscious mind. It’s like a beautiful meeting of the real + imaginary within layers of soft, quiet femininity. By using the meditative process of ceramics to interpret these details from the natural (and sometimes not-so-natural) world, I hope to bring a sense of wonder and delight to the viewer, and inspire you to notice “the little things” normally overlooked or unseen in the busyness of modern life.
