Valerie Birkhoff

Valerie will discuss her inspiration, show you one of the processes she uses for a figure sculpture, and talk about finishes.  She’s going to include a video, some of her favorite references, materials, and a live demo.

Artist Statement Valerie Birkhoff:
I’ve been working with clay 6 six years ago starting with expressive figurative portraits and progressing to full body figurative sculptures. My education has continued and I’ve explored several techniques and finishes.  My goal with the sculpture is to allow the viewer the vouyer experience and allowing you to stare and study expressions as well as the relationships between the sculptures whenever I pair them together.
