Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Colorado-based ceramic artist Isabella Maroon earned her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield, MI (2020).
While at Cranbrook, Maroon transformed the focus of her practice from figurative to abstract work—and literally broke her attachment to her earlier work by smashing the lot. The shards and shattered fragments left behind by that destructive act are given a second life in Maroon’s new work, symbolizing memory’s role in defining who we are and who we might become.
Maroon’s work has been exhibited nationally in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, and Detroit.
