Barbara Balzer

Barbara, after practicing law for almost twenty years, earned a master of fine arts in sculpture. Her ceramic figurative work has since won many awards, including the President de la Generalitat Valenciana – First Prize at the X Bienal International de Ceramic in Manises, Spain. Barbara has led workshops in Europe, Asia, and the United States, and her work is included in museum collections around the world. Barbara works out of her small studio-garden on a converted autopsy table in Tallahassee, Florida, always in search of an idea.
