"Her ceramic sculptures strike a delicate balance between the unaffected sensuality of Georgia O'Keeffe and the structural rigor of Anish Kapoor." -- Noyes Museum of Art, "Michelle Kalman: Sensual Nature"
(Solo Exhibition 2016)
Many thanks to the generous supporter who donated "Reach" to Moravian University. The nearly 5ft-tall sculpture is installed in the Health Sciences Center. Additional ceramic and wall pieces are also now part of the Payne Gallery Moravian University collection.
"Spirit Pods" are created from my ritual work in Buddhist and Shamanic traditions. Born during the pandemic, each paper sculpture is filled with prayers for healing, protection and transcendence.
Quirky stories from my childhood, humorous observations about parenthood and tales of my creativity. It feels good to let it all hang out, and intimately invite you in. Welcome.
