NADA BONER

NADA BONER

This Birmingham artist’s work is as diversified as her busy life. Nada Boner instructs beginners in the art of hand building and sculpture, but her passion and focus truly lay in organic ceramic sculpture. Influenced by people and the world around her, Ms. Boner aspires to capture a humorous glimpse of the human spirit, a story told through the figurative art form.

Clay is Ms. Boner’s medium. Working with earth tone clay bodies in their natural form, these pieces of art show a crude vitality with little or no glaze on the completed sculpture. Raku, a reduction glaze technique that relies on the extremes of nature’s elements – fire, air and water – create the effect on her work making each piece unique, impossible to duplicate.
Through a number of successful and award-winning shows, as well as news articles and television appearances, Ms. Boner has made a name for herself in the art community.


Inspiration

Cancer has played a large part of my professional life. I have donated numerous sculptures in my career to benefit cancer research due to the many friends, family and students touched by this disease.
