There is always a balance to maintain when living in our world of opposing forces. How we experience, understand, and react to them is what makes us unique. At what point is chaos transformed to structure? How does repetition live with color and simultaneously compete with elegance? Many questions emerge from these thoughts and are the basis for Koralís current body of ceramic work he has been developing as an artist in residence at the Clay Studio of Missoula.

Working with clay brings these questions alive. For Koral, coil building is an intuitive process, which lends itself to both very structural and organic forms. He can use the human touch in juxtaposition with structure, while maintaining the idea that these elements are one in the same. His hope is to mesh our history into a new composition that paints both land and cityscape.

Koral Halperin grew up in the Virgin Islands, Chicago, and New York. He later went on to receive his AFA at the College of Dupage in 2009, and completed his Bachelors degree from Southern Illinois University in 2012. He has since gone through a Post Baccalaureate program at Kansas State University, a long-term residency at Red Lodge Clay Center, and is currently finishing up a long-term residency at The Clay Studio of Missoula.
