Sharon Ramick
I am a hand-builder in clay; mostly a sculptor. Louisville, Kentucky has always been my home. 
I love to find faces in everyday objects and so I create sculptures that reflect this. I am drawn to storytelling and art-pieces that encourage conversation. My formal education was just the basics: two years at community college. Most of my learning is from my own research and obsession with all things clay related.
