Arlene Shechet, known for her wild and witty sculptures, took a variety of [Meissen’s] classic molds and radically repurposed them. The result is a collection of more than 60 strange but beautiful hybrids.
Known for her porcelain works as well as her distinguish sculptures, Arlene can surprise us with her imagination and we love her work!
