Using multiple small parts, American-born artist Jeanne Quinn constructs large pieces of installation that often reference the history of decorative arts or to some extent would derive influence and reference to decorative arts itself. Initially trained as an art historian, she obtained her MFA in Ceramics from University of Washington. Throughout her seven years of practice, she explored the immutable and fragile nature of ceramics.
