Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Acquires Nargila Pod

I am truly honored and delighted that the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has recently acquired my ceramic sculpture, Nargila Pod, to be part of its permanent contemporary art collection. I am especially grateful since the new MFA Contemporary Art Department has been addressing the shifting boundary between art and craft, deliberately embracing both art and craft media within the Linde Family Wing Galleries.

My heartfelt thanks go to MFA Collections Committee; to Emily Zilber, Ronald C. and Anita L. Wornick Curator of Contemporary Decorative Arts, who initiated the acquisition process; to the Hainer Family, who bought and donated the piece; to Roberta Tunnard, director of Vessels Gallery, whose generosity in giving me a solo show led to wider exposure of my work; and to Gretchen Keyworth, director emerita of the Fuller Craft Museum, who recommended that Emily take a look.

Transcultural Exchange Tile Project, Destination: The World

“My tiles represent aerial views of the earth, combining traces of natural and built environments. They express a yearning to see ourselves from above as one human family.”

The Tile Project incorporates individual tiles, created by over 100 renowned, diverse, international artists. Tiles were installed at 22 sites throughout the world--at museums, cultural centers, parks and other public places--between 2004-2008.

These public art works will act as enduring symbols of international cooperation, innovation, and respect.
