Judy Gans
Tucson, Arizona

Judy has long been curious about why she finds something beautiful…

Why a particular painting or sculpture or scene in nature for that matter works visually, and that curiosity informs her artistic expression.  In addition to careers in economic consulting and public policy, she has long focused on refining her aesthetic expression through ceramics.


She fell in love with the Sonoran desert when she moved to Tucson 15 years ago… with the adaptations that allow desert plants and animals to thrive in a harsh climate; the palette rendered by the clear air; the rugged mountains; and the hidden treasures that emerge whenever there is water. 


Ceramics, with its materials derived from the earth and the blazing atmosphere inside a kiln, is uniquely suited to forms that are inspired by nature and by the Sonoran desert.  The textures, forms, and complex colors of the natural world inspire her sculptural work and functional pieces.
