Guest Juror: Gwendolyn Yoppolo

Gwendolyn Yoppolo uses words, ceramic objects, and food to stretch boundaries and transform perception.  She creates sensuous kitchen- and table-wares that use the physical experience of hunger and satiation to allude to larger issues of human desire and relationship.  Her visionary designs challenge us to rethink the ways we nourish ourselves and others within contemporary food culture.  She earned an MFA in Ceramics from Penn State University, an MA in Education from Columbia University, and a BA in Sociology from Haverford College.  A passionate educator and thinker as well as a maker, her writing can be found in Studio PotterPottery Making Illustrated, and Passion and Pedagogy.  Currently gwendolyn is serving as Associate Professor of Ceramics at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania.
