Grace Chen (b. 1990) is a Taiwanese-American ceramic sculptor.
She created her first pinch pot in kindergarten, but it was not until her second year at university that she began working with clay again—this time, from a non-functional perspective. After a year of Pre-Pharmacy studies at Purdue, she completed dual degrees in Art History and Ceramics and a minor in Design. From 2012 to 2016, she worked in the Fine Art appraisal industry, academia, and corporate before moving to New York in 2016 for a position as an interim gallery director for a French gallery on the Lower East Side. Grace worked for galleries in Chelsea and SoHo before entering Carole Feuerman Studios as the Executive Director of the CFS Foundation.
Currently, Grace makes sculptures from her home studio in Manhattan. For more information or to arrange a commission, visit her website at www.gracechen.us.
