Assistant Professor of Instruction and Program Head of Ceramics
Lauren Sandler is an artist and educator whose work deconstructs mythologies and investigates narratives of power and perspective. With fragmented forms, allegorical vessels and mundane assemblages, Sandler amplifies interdependence, highlights stories obfuscated or erased and implicates our assumptions of normal and worth. With a background in anthropology, she examines the myriad chronicles told by objects and develops work where the visceral and structural meet a shared intersection of body, culture and history.
Sandler exhibits nationally and publishes work and lectures concerning issues of equity in ceramics. She currently serves on the Board of The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts as Director at Large.
