Kristen Cliffel

Kristen Cliffel’s sculptural work and studio practice revolve around the topics of domesticity and emotional relationships. She investigates the faceted, and often conflicted, messaging we receive about home, fulfillment, expectations, and triggers, and our inherent struggle to reconcile archetypal myths with our daily realities. Cliffel earned her BFA at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Ohio in 1990. In addition to teaching workshops at colleges and universities across the country, teaching sculpture and ceramics to school-aged children, and participating in residencies and exhibitions, she is currently a full-time studio artist in Cleveland, Ohio.
