Marti Schoen’s figurative ceramic sculptures express emotion and narrative through attention to details, texture and movement. Glazes, underglazes and mason stains are applied in broad abstractions that anticipate unexpected fluxes to emerge when fired. Marti majored in art and psychology at State University of New York New Paltz and San Francisco State University; and studied independently with San Francisco Bay Area artists. She was employed as a commercial artist for over 30 years, working in graphic design, illustration and film animation.
