Irit Lepkin

Israeli-born Canadian ceramicist Irit Lepkin engages in an artistic duet with her pieces executed in earthenware clay,

The artist explains that her pieces are meant to accentuate mixed messages. The juxtaposition of soft clay with metaphorical harshness of reality underscores what she terms “the inescapable psychological condition of modernity.” Whether boundaries are political or personal, we share the suffering of separateness as a dilemma in the universal human condition.
