Nevada-based artist Rebekah Bogard is a ceramicist who creates immersive
environments of colorful, playful -and at times disturbing - scenes of
imaginary creatures enveloped in abundant flora and fauna. Each one of
Bogard¹s figures is a handcrafted earthenware object, finished with acrylic,
underglazes, and glazes. Her figurative representations may appear endearing
at first, yet upon closer inspection we recognize traits that are associated
with the human species more than with the animal variety. While as a
material ceramics are often relegated to the applied, or lesser arts,
Bogard¹s immersive "non-functional" landscapes ground this work in a
contemporary domain where issues of sexuality, gender, and role-playing are
explored. Her work is featured in the December 2008 issue of Ceramics
