​Sharon Hardy Ceramics

Artist Bio

 Sharon Hardy is an artist who primarily uses clay to create wall and free- standing sculpture.  The dualities of chaos and order, growth and decay, organic and mechanical are the inspiration for Sharon’s sculptures.  Tension between parts and the whole, form, and patterns found in the systems of nature drive the ideas behind her work.  

Sharon received her BFA from Arizona State University and studied ceramics at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Colorado.  Sharon has exhibited throughout California including, The Richmond Arts Center, The Irvine Fine Arts Center, SCAPE Gallery and Gallery 825.  Her works hang in private collections throughout the US
