Diane KW and Joel Park
Ceramic artist Diane KW divides her time between Hawaii and Cape Ann. Prior to her art career she worked as a neurologist, epidemiologist and researcher in the USA and in Switzerland. KW’s work with ceramics is quite varied, from hand-carved vessels to conceptual collage transformation of ceramic shards. Her work may be seen in many other museum collections including the Honolulu Museum of Art in Hawaii, the Nanchong University Ceramic Museum in China, the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands and the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg in Florida.
