Claudia Tarantino

Claudia grew up in San Francisco where her
mother carved and embellished porcelain
greenware and china painted in the dining
room. Although Claudia majored in art in
college, she is self-taught as a ceramic artist.
She graduated from Dominican College of San
Rafael, CA in 1966 where she studied painting,
but fell in love with clay. After graduating she
bought a wheel and a kiln and set about
becoming a proficient production potter for
many years. In 1978 Claudia shifted from
production stoneware to working in porcelain,
making small one-of-a-kind sculptural
containers, boxes and bottles, lusciously
colored with underglazes and china paints.
She exhibits her work in galleries nationally.
Her current work moves fluidly between the
teapot as sculpture and trompe l ‘oeil still life.
