(American, born 1954)
Portland, Oregon-based artist Ronna Neuenschwander creates figurative ceramic sculptures. Her works are influenced by the artistic motifs and traditions she has encountered during her travels. She notes, "I don't consider myself a history buff, but I am an avid collector of the overlooked and obscure in history. This tendency, along with a delight for the humorous and absurd, has influenced my approach to ceramic sculpture for years." She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas in 1976.
