Since 2000, Kansas artist and educator Stephanie Lanter has been working in clay, fiber, and mixed media. Cerbera Gallery’s latest exhibition, “Slippery”, by Lanter engages with the cryptic paradoxes that can be found in her work. Using delicate lines to connect abstract sculptural elements, Lanter magnifies the relationship between negative space and form.

Lanter’s distinctive clay and fiber sculptures reveal the unrelenting modes of communication that link people’s bodies and minds through negative space. Using a technique called “analog 3-d printing” or manual slip trailing, Lanter builds ambiguous forms with liquid porcelain. Through this method, Lanter has developed her own language as hidden phrases and nonsensical words are strung together in clay throughout her sculptures.

Lanter, received an MFA from Ohio University in 2002 and a BA from Xavier University in 1998. Lanter is Currently the Assistant Professor of Ceramics at Emporia State University in Kansas. She has also taught at Washburn and Wichita State Universities.
