Nancy Selvin

American, b. 1943
Nancy Selvin is an American sculptor, recognized for ceramic works and tableaux that explore the vessel form and balance an interplay of materials, minimal forms, and expressive processes.She emerged in the late 1960s among a "second generation" of Bay Area ceramic artists who followed the California Clay Movement and continued to challenge ceramic traditions involving expression, form and function, and an art-world that placed the medium outside its established hierarchy. She trained there as a sculptor with Peter Voulkos and Ron Nagle, who encouraged spontaneity and improvisation, producing work that departed from traditional ceramics by privileging color and form over function.
