Rebecca Zweibel

"I came late to the idea of seeing myself as an artist, but I am so grateful to be able to learn and explore this unlimited world! I work in an intuitive way and find that my freshest results come from disconnecting my thoughts from the process at hand and letting my subconscious deliver what it needs to say."

Rebecca Zweibel's pieces serve as canvasses for her use of line, color, and texture. She works instinctively and thoughtfully, with no preplanned design in mind. Each ceramic form is made individually; she sketches and redraws different forms directly onto the clay surface until she is satisfied that she will like what will be built from the slab of clay—even then, she often alters the piece as she goes. Her designs are unrestrained and unmeditated and convey unprocessed emotions of freedom and abandon.

Zweibel constructs each piece one at a time; none are like any other. Her vessels are slab built from earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain. Zweibel's forms are decorated with varying combinations of terra sigillata, slip, and underglaze. Diverse tools and found objects are used to create unique textures on her pieces along with a traditional carving technique called sgraffito. Her pieces are fired in an electric kiln, rendering the designs indelible. Zweibel is always alert for new-found tools on her walks in the neighborhoods and on the beaches of Florida.

Rebecca Zweibel is primarily a self taught artist, but she is thankful for the opportunity to attend many inspiring workshops and retreats. She continues her education working with the many talented artists in her home studio in St. Petersburg.
