Zena Segre @zsegre is a ceramicist based in Oakland, California. Her first foray into clay was in 2013 when she took a wheel throwing class. After that, “I was hooked,” she says. Up until that point, her focus had been in sculpture and installation, where she developed her philosophy for creating. "Be obsessed with what you do. Make work that can stand on its own, but is enriched by explanation. Stay playful.” Zena’s plans for the future include utilizing her functional ceramic wares as props in larger scale installations and performances. "I like the idea of the pots being accessible artifacts from my larger artwork that people can take home.” To top things off, Zena is also a ceramic educator with 3 years of teaching under her belt. We are so excited to be featuring Zena’s gorgeous works all this week :)
