Artist Biography

Rebecca Manson is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated with a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and has received a Windgate Fellowship Award and a Windgate Project Grant. She has been a resident artist and Zentrum Fur Keramik and California State University Long Beach. Through her sculpture work and in the classroom, Rebecca is interested in clay as a metaphor for community and the body. The spherical form, a recurring theme in her work, celebrates the idea that small parts together amount to something impactful. Her work is frequently comprised of thousands of tiny, handmade porcelain parts which on their own may appear trivial, but in mass depict the power of togetherness. Through her upcoming interactive public outdoor sculpture, she challenges ideas about fragility.
