Meet the Artist

Elisabeth Kley

Known for her distinctive black-and-white ceramic objects, Elisabeth Kley’s work stands at the nexus of pattern, decoration, and play. In Kley's first solo museum show, Minutes of Sand, her textile works intermingle with her signature black-and-white ceramics to create a space uniquely hers, defined by bold colors, strong lines, and distinctive forms.
