Anja Isphording

German artist Anja Isphording makes intimate-scale objects, which are tactile and rich with deeply saturated colors.  Her glass pieces are reminiscent of basic molecular structures, honeycombs or coral reefs, but their biological reference remains ambiguous.  She explores nature without ever literally reproducing it. 

 Isphording studied in Germany and the Czech Republic. Her work has been exhibited in Europe and the United States.  Her pieces are included in the collections of the Kunstmuseum Dusseldorf in Dusseldorf, Germany, Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia, and the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin, Germany as well as other public institutions.  Isphording lives and works in Canada.
