After 24 years as director/curator of SAM Gallery at the Seattle Art Museum, Barbara returned 4 years ago to her original calling as a ceramic sculptor. Her current series references her love of the natural environment as well as her concern about the dangers it faces from climate change and devastating political policies. The rocks, arches and cave entrances she has seen in the desert Southwest and on the Northwest coastline inspire her as does her concern about current attacks on our National Monuments and other wild lands. Shaiman prefers the work to be enigmatic, not to supply answers but to encourage us to think about our relationship to the environment with a somewhat altered vision.
