About

Meegan Barnes is a Los Angeles based multidisciplinary artist, sculptor and illustrator. Her work is cheeky, irreverent and empowering. She combines the feminine with the feminist motifs in her high fired stoneware that is covered with a beautiful reflective luster. Her sculptures are rooted in the tradition of craft with nods to ancient artifacts and folklore, spiritual symbolism, warrior women and pop culture. The sculptures act as a vehicle for artistic expression and social commentary. Her voluptuous backsides are often glazed with 22kt gold or bold colorful designs.

This 11 inch tall by 8 inch wide and 6 inch deep gold luster and white original, one-of-a-kind ceramic sculpture is ready to be displayed on any flat surface. It is signed by the artist on the bottom, underneath the artwork. Affordable US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included.

Barnes grew up in the Bay Area of California and received her BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts in Oakland. She moved to New York after graduating and worked for many years as a designer and illustrator for the fashion, beauty and music industries, including Paper and Vibe magazine. It was after returning from a four month painting and surfing trip in Brazil, and experiencing the culture’s embrace of female forms in all shapes and sizes, that she sculpted her first ceramic and has been honing her artistry ever since.

Drawing on her early career as a fashion designer, the sculptures also serve as a canvas for colorful design motifs inspired by the high end fashion houses as well as Los Angeles iconography. Each set of curves is unique with a very individual personality.

Her work has been included in publications such as Vice, Paper, Juxtapose and Paulette. She recently did a collaboration with Opening Ceremony. Barne's work is collected and loved internationally for its specific style of cheeky empowerment.
