Stephanie Bachiero manipulates and twists porcelain clay to create abstract forms. Her sculptures extend from pedestal to wall and defy gravity, grounding themselves through components of negative space and solid architectural structure. Bachiero experienced a stroke at a young age, and the dialogue between the physical material of her artwork and her own body brought stability and structure to her work and her recovery. Bachiero has recently exhibited in several exhibitions in her hometown of Laguna Beach, California, including OsCene Exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum, Summer Supermarket at the Peter Blake Gallery, and Surf Casa Project at La Casa del Camino. She received a bachelor of arts in communication and fine arts from Boston College.
