Barbara Bravo has been an artist her entire life. Primarily a Ceramic Artist she has recently broadened her scope to include painted paper collage. Recent works include sculpted clay tiles that are made by layering and carving. These pieces are kiln fired a number of times to enhance color or in some cases may simply remain unglazed allowing the piece to cast shadows upon itself to clarify the imagery. The collage work is an extension of what she achieves with clay and features imagery that tends to be landscapes.
Barbara has participated in many group shows in region and recently had a one-person show at the Saugerties Public Library, and The North River Coffee Roasters at the Underwear Factory in Poughkeepsie.
