Sonja Duò-Meyer (Swiss, b. 1953) is a ceramic artist in the modernist/minimalist tradition; she currently lives and operates a studio in Zurich. Taking cues from traditional Modernist precepts as well as Japanese aesthetic philosophy, Duo-Meyer’s work, which includes vessels, sculptural objects, and wall installations, are a study in meditative elegance achieved by actively restricting material, form and color. An ever-present subtle asymmetry and the delicate balance of positive and negative space yield a visual stillness inherent across her entire body of work.
