About the Artist

She has had solo shows of her ceramic work at Iko Iko Space in Los Angeles and Saffron in Brooklyn. Krantz was a Pollock-Krasner Fellow at the Woodstock-Byrdcliffe Artist’s Colony in 2009. She earned her MFA from Hunter College and her BA from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Krantz currently lives and works in Seattle.
