Member Profile: Elissa Bromberg

Elissa Bromberg has been an active member at Kingston Ceramics Studio for the past three years. Although she started working with clay twelve years ago, she has been an artist nearly her entire life. Starting in New York City as a Sculpture undergraduate at the School of Visual Arts, she continued to live in NYC and explore a variety of mediums, as well as spending time working as an art therapist.

She left NYC and moved up to the Hudson Valley 16 years ago and has resided here ever since. What she loves most about working at Kingston Ceramics Studio is the community and the mutual respect between members that exists.

“My work explores the raw essences of the human encounter through the use of archetypes. Inspired by theater, puppetry, and the carnival arts, my sculpture becomes a collective experience of emotion, thought, movement, and spirit in a complex world that pairs love with loss, empathy with suffering, belongingness with exclusion.”
