Artist Bio:
Erika Kohr Island first came to glass in a workshop in Portland; soon, she relates, “I found myself developing a deeply satisfying relationship with the material,” which allowed her to develop and express “themes of nature, gender and intimacy.”

Following a career working for production studios throughout the Pacific Northwest and teaching at the influential Pilchuck Glass School outside of Seattle, Kohr Island and her husband relocated to the Mendocino coast, where she continues to make art in her home studio and exhibit nationally and internationally.

Additional Info: 
Erika Kohr Island creates small, harmoniously proportioned sculptures which on closer examination are not as whimsical as they appear, breaking down the human body into components in order to frankly meditate on the mystery of embodiment. Under the artist’s hand, the body actively interacts with, and sometimes is even interrupted by, the natural as well as built environment—including being divided into top and bottom halves, strewn with cloud images, or displaying a red and visible heart.
