The Gregg Museum presents a special exhibition that suggests the full range of her work, from extremely fragile and airy sculptures that may call to mind delicate undersea corals or passing clouds, to sturdy, practical cookware that can make cooking itself a kind of performance art. Whether made of porcelain as thin and translucent as kitten ears or of redware adorned with ornamental fruit and tendrils, Scarpa's work expresses an intense and exuberant response to the world of nature and celebrates the joy of being alive.
100% of all sales directly benefit the Goathouse Refuge for Cats
