About the Artist

"Deborah Horrell is an artist whose studio practice is her meditative practice; she manifests her ideas into forms as a means to process, contemplate, and acknowledge the coequal exhilarations and casualties of life....Horrell penetrates the veil between blithe existence and the deepest challenge of human inquiry."
Linda Tesner, Curator, Hoffman Gallery, Lewis and Clark Gallery, Portland, Oregon

Deborah Horrell received her MFA from the University of Washington in 1979. After working as a ceramist for many years, she explored wood and bronze. Horrell then began investigating glass at the Pilchuck Glass School during a residency in 1994. A residency at the Bullseye Factory followed in 1996 permanently redirecting the trajectory of her career. The artist has shown her work in museums and galleries nationally and internationally.
