Claire Falkenstein / An Expansive Universe

The Jack Rutberg Fine Arts gallery in Los Angeles has an amazing Claire Falkenstein show up. 
There is a 200 page book that's been published in conjunction with the show.  
They had an advance copy at the gallery. I can't wait to get my hands on one.  

Grouping of copper and glass sculptures. The paintings are by her too.   

The two early ceramic pieces are really special. It doesn't get much rarer than that.

Why she didn't do more work in clay is a mystery to me.
