"Prolific 2," ceramic art by Christine Sanders


“I developed a love and respect for the natural word during the many years I taught environmental science to elementary school children in and around Orange County,” said CSUF alumna and graduate student Christine Sanders of Yorba Linda, a 2006 bachelor of fine arts graduate completing her master’s degree in art. Sanders’ work includes “nonspecific representations of the life cycles that occur in all organisms, containing elements of both plant and animal forms. They call attention to the beauty and value of each stage of life we all experience.”

Shana Salaff of Santa Ana received her undergraduate degree from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and is completing her master of fine arts degree at CSUF. Her ceramic vessels have been described as being designed for aesthetic pleasure, as well as utility, and run the gamut between traditional to a more postmodern pastiche of style, colors and decorative patterns. She says she creates “useful jewels — shiny, small in stature and made with as much care as possible.”
