Born and trained in Japan, Mami Kato has gained renown as a career sculpture artist who creates works that emphasize classic Japanese materials.

Her work begins with an abstract concept or notion and interacts with the sculptural process to give form to this as visual poetry. Best known for her use of rice straw, Kato uses this material to represent its ability to sustain life and the potential of energy to surge from the earth. Her intention is to visualize the invisible order and dynamism of nature and the universe through her art.

We are pleased to announce that voting is now open for Fezya Kemahlioglu’s Glowing Sentiments collection included in the People’s Choice awards!

This collection is a mix of artistry, tradition, and sentimentality inspired by the concept of a charm necklace, where each charm is thoughtfully chosen for its sentimental significance. Much like these cherished personal talismans, each piece in this lighting ensemble possesses its own distinct character and energy, connected by delicate chains that symbolize our interwoven human experiences.

We are pleased to announce Vortex, the first solo exhibition in the United States for Mexico City based artist Valerie Campos. Opening April 18th, this show presents a new series of large-scale paintings and drawings that are a blend of the artist’s inner experiences and outward influences, both historical and personal.

The works in this exhibition evoke the physical instability, fragility and transfiguration that embody the relevant issues of our times. To this end, she combines historical art references from ancient and modern sculptures, geometric shapes and pre-Hispanic elements as universal symbols, whose juxtaposition represents the fusion, collapse, and disjunction of human history.

Join us for the opening with the artist on April 18 from 5:30 – 7:30pm at Wexler Gallery Philadelphia.

’s Meedo Wallpaper is now available to order! The custom wallpaper design from our booth at Design/Miami 2023 plays homage to the Afro pick. Similar to his Meedo Chair, the wallpaper draws inspiration from traditional African hair picks with particular focus on Afro picks that incorporate the human figure into its handle design. This style of design goes as far back as 4000 - 3000 BCE in Egypt with a bald human head decoration on an ivory comb.

Glass artist Andy Paiko is known for his ambitious, technical works, which explore the metaphorical and symbolic tension of form versus function. He considers his goal as an artist to examine the role of glass in relation to its function – to make things that try to both communicate and imitate purpose.
“The glassblowing process is an additive one, much like our personalities. Rather than a form emerging from a block of solid stone reductively, forms of glass are pushed into space organically by a cumulative history of layering and motion.”

Trish DeMasi creates abstract ceramic sculptures inspired by nature and architecture. Her work is a harmonious combination of biomorphic and rigid geometric forms. The sculptures and vessels are conceived initially as drawings or paintings and then translated into three-dimensional ceramic works. Each piece is completely hand built in a variety of clay bodies, carved, and then glazed.

Lamella Pod Wall installation is seven separate pieces. It started with maquette (miniatures) for testing design and glazes and then hand building each form one at a time. Lamella texture is applied and then each piece dries very slowly for a few weeks before they’re off to the kiln for a bisque firing. The next step is hand brushing the glaze and another kiln firing. Trish does not use molds, 3d printing or assistants.

Artist Gregory Nangle is best known for his creative and aesthetic approach to his choice of materials. His mixed media mirrors use his “language of hardware and glass” to create works that prove that opposites can both attract and create a dynamic, thought-provoking tension.

“As a sculptor with a heavy background in metal and glass, I naturally wanted to show both materials in a new way working together,” Nangle explains. “As a painter, I also wanted to use my lifelong technical training in oil painting through the lens of glass as a material.”

We are pleased to announce that works by Malcolm Mombutu Smith have been included in the Dug Deeper Exhibition at the Vernon Filley Art Museum. This exhibition showcases ceramic artists who boldly confront their identities head on and use clay to celebrate, investigate, and question themselves and their place in the world. Says Smith “I have always been interested in the potential of ceramics to engage in art ideas through the lens of pottery and vessel language.”

On View Now: Works by Perla Krauze in our Osmosis exhibition at Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia. The Mexican painter and sculptor’s work often uses found or discarded materials, and deals with time, memory, nature, and dualities. Influenced by modernist architects who have left their imprint on Mexico, Krauze developed her own personal language and discovered that the essence of Mexico itself — its volcanic ruins and archaeological sites, its mythical and primordial qualities — was her most profound inspiration.

Says Krauze, “I am interested in materiality, the ephemeral and the permanent, the archaeological collections and cabinets, relationships between objects and lately habitable sculptures and installations within space… Materials, all of them, convey the memory of a place, they talk about where they came from.”

Congratulations to Wexler Gallery artist Henry Bermudez on the opening of his exhibition at the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia! This show is the most extensive exploration of the Venezuela-born artist’s work to date and chronicles his journey to rebuild his practice upon arriving in Philadelphia as a seeker of political asylum in 2003.⁠

We are also pleased to announce Mythological Musings, a selection of Bermudez’s studies, sketches, and explorations that inspired the monumental works in his retrospective at the museum will be on view at Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia from March 4th – April 26th. These works on paper- including gouche, collage and ink drawings- delve into the artist’s fascination with the Afro-Caribbean jungles of his native Venezuela as well as broader themes of colonialism, religion and mythology.⁠

welcoming for a fun studio visit!

Inspired by the architecture and culture of her native Istanbul, Feyza Kemahlioglu has created a unique lighting collection entitled Pillars of Meerschaum. Meerschaum (German for ”sea-foam”) is a soft white clay mineral found mainly in Eskisehir, a small city in central Turkey. Feyza collaborates with master Turkish craftsman who carve the Meerschaum with intricate patterns and perforations to diffuse the light. The stone is then combined with hand-blown glass and brass elements created in New York. The blown glass compliments the detailing of the Meerschaum with the addition of delicate textures made with cane and gold leaf.

By taking these ancient materials and giving them a contemporary aesthetic and function, Feyza marries the old and the new to create timeless designs that are studies in the juxtaposition of tradition and modernity. From afar, the pieces seem solid, but upon closer examination, the intricate hand-carved floral and graphic patterns become visible with the glowing light shining through.

The work of can be best described as a blend of streamlined architectural elegance with loose instinctual sculptural refinement. Inspired by naturally occurring forms and by pushing raw materials beyond their practical application, Patrick consistently challenges the traditional boundaries of functional design. Not only through developing original techniques sculpting in concrete, but also by juxtaposing his organic forms and sculpted concrete elements with his signature minimal Swiss craftsmanship.⁠
