Krista Grecco is a full-time sculptor working in porcelain. She can be found outside most mornings, homeschooling her son among the pine trees and ferns around Atlanta, Georgia. Together they marvel at mushrooms and classify caterpillars while they pick up and recycle an array of interesting garbage. Drawing influence from nature, Art Deco, and vintage toys, Krista imbues her work with emotion and saturated color.
Public and private collections include Ariana Museum of Ceramics and Glass in Geneva, Switzerland, Emory Decatur Hospital in Decatur, GA, and Orlando International Airport (Delta Airlines) in Orlando, Fl.
“I am drawn to objects that have a history and a story to tell. At home and in the studio, I surround myself with bits of nature and nostalgic trinkets. Dried mushrooms, gnawed bones, old toys, and tattered stuffed animals line the shelves and feed my imagination. I treasure these objects for their formal appeal and narrative. They are beautifully weathered, abstracted, and colorful. Surfaces and details may have faded over time, but the emotions tied to these objects are palpable.”
