Michelle Gregor creates sculpture in high fire ceramic and bronze. Her work has been described as lyrical, graceful, spiritual. Her architectural sculpture graces the exterior of the Olympic Club on Sutter Street in San Francisco and an interior space at the Spa at Pebble Beach. Her figurative sculptures in bronze and ceramic are in private homes, offices, and gardens of private collectors.
"Sculpture is a tributary that runs deeply through the great creative current. The Process of sculpture in clay, with its slow beginning, heavy physicality, and transformations through both water and fire, compels me. To practice this art form is to be deeply humbled by its treasures, exquisite and remarkable. This long conversation between artist and material takes many courses: a wandering dialogue. Through the vehicle of the Figure, my intention is to articulate something of the precious source that animates us. The transient state of our existence is the muse."
She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from University of California, Santa Cruz and Master of Fine Arts degree from San Francisco State University.
