Anna Calluori Holcombe, "FLOR 69: Longbract Wakerobin (Trillium underwoodii) ", commercial porcelain tile, ceramic decal, slip cast porcelain, luster, 6" x 4” x 2", 2008 (CC)

 

About the Artist

The artist graduated cum laude with a BA in art education from Montclair State University in 1974. She received her MFA in ceramics from Louisiana State University in 1977. Teaching in higher education since 1978. She has been a professor at the University of Florida for the last 5 years. Calluori Holcombe exhibits on a national and international level.

Artist Statement

I use the decals in a collage-like fashion, cutting and "pasting” them to fit the areas and concept I am interested in. The shift from two-dimensional to three-dimensional as well as from negative and positive space, becomes critical to the composition.
