REVIEWS:

 

“Elizabeth Shriver’s ceramic sculptures resemble natural entities, such as coral or seeds, blown up in scale. Re-imagining tiny forms as three-foot-tall sculptures encourages us to get lost in the detail, texture, and subtle symmetry of the organic.”

“Shriver has recreated a coral reef within the gallery space with her ceramic creations inspired by undersea life. They have muted colors but the shapes are remarkably realistic.”

“Her works transcend the ceramic media. The first thing you notice is the shape and form of her ceramic sculpture, not what the object is made of. Her works are very pleasing to view.”

 

“I recommend that anyone working in ceramics view her work just to get some ideas and compositional techniques. The rest of us can benefit from the beauty that each work creates.”
