gwendolyn yoppolo uses words, ceramic objects, and food to stretch boundaries and transform perception. She creates sensuous kitchen- and table-wares that use the physical experience of hunger and satiation to address issues of human desire and relationships, and to challenge the ways we nourish ourselves and others within contemporary food culture.  She holds an MFA in ceramics from Penn State University, and is currently Assistant Professor of Ceramics at Kutztown University.  Her writing is published in Studio PotterPottery Making Illustrated, and Passion and Pedagogy.
