Years ago, acclaimed artist Dina Angel-Wing found her ingeniously crafted teapots in the international spotlight. Making use of Japanese motifs and raku firing techniques, Angel-Wing’s functional vessels turned lively witticisms into delightful visual puns. The overwhelming attention the media garnered on these pieces, as well as the devoted patronage of private and public collectors throughout the United States and Europe, allowed the artist increasing freedom to concentrate on fine art sculpture.

Her first fine art series were extravagant clay and mixed media vessels aptly named Dream Boxes for their functional impracticality yet ideal physical representation of containers in which to wrap and preserve dreams.

In recent years, Angel-Wing has focused on smoothly textured, figurative pieces. These partially-formed female forms are juxtaposed against geometric metal environments. The resulting sculptures are mysterious montages incorporating figures suspended against abstract minimalist compositions.

Dina Angel-Wing received a B.A. in Art History from Haifa University, studied sculpture at Jerusalem’s Betzael School of Art, and upon emigrating from her native Israel, studied ceramics with Wayne Horuchi at Stanford University and raku with Andree Thompson at UC Berkeley. She has exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Airport Gallery, Museum of Texas Tech University, Triton Museum, Richmond Art Center, and the Copia Museum of Wine, Food, & Art in Napa, CA. In addition, her work has been featured in such publications as House Beautiful, Home Magazine, International Entertaining Magazine, Home and Garden, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Oakland Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Francisco Examiner Image Magazine.


My focus for this figurative series is to express movement beyond the physical confines of the sculpture. Most often I leave the figure unfinished, still in the state of creation and juxtaposed against the angular lines of the steel stands. The stands become part of the figure either by defining it or by extending a dynamic line.
