Betty Woodman was born in 1930 in Norwalk, Connecticut. She attended Alfred University from 1948 to1950. Woodman lived for a time in Colorado, teaching at the University of Colorado Boulder along with her husband George Woodman, also an artist and teacher. More recently she has traveled and lived in Italy where she garners inspiration for many of her pieces. Woodman often experiments with the ceramic vessel form in unique ways, using bright colors and joining and interlocking pieces of clay together to create new forms. Woodman's work resides in many museum collections and she has held solo exhibitions all over the world. This is an example of her early work.
