BARBARA HAGER’S sculpture pieces.
When she was 27, she began working with clay, because she thought that it would be mentally, physically, and economically sustainable for the rest of her life. It has! For 45 years, she has been a full-time professional artist, sculpting clay, making pots, and applying poly-chromatic glazes to surfaces. She has exhibited and sold pots for 25 years, and at the age of 50 recreated herself and earned a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) in Ceramics.
She has been actively engaged with water use for the past 12 years, making a series of teapots and teacups, and depicting plants that rely on water. Her future work will go below the surface to discuss the effects of contaminants on the Lake Superior.
