Featuring new and recent works by Moore alumna Jill Bell '96, this exhibition presents the artist's playful ceramic figures that exist among one another in an imaginary world full of color and texture. All works on view are for sale, click here to see what's available.

Bell received her BFA from Moore College of Art & Design and an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Upon finishing graduate school, she lived in Maine for 9 months as a Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts winter resident. It was there, frustrated with building larger sculptural pieces with the local clay and having them crack, she decided to change things up. She was inspired by a chowder bowl project they did with the local community and began making bowls and cups of her own. Coupled with her interest in manipulating the human form to create alienlike figures as wall-hanging sculptures, Bell explores paranormal themes and maintains a studio practice that allows her to push the boundaries of form vs function.
