Crissi Dalfonzo is a ceramic artist who pushes the limits of her material and the boundaries of her viewers. Crissi casts with porcelain so thin, it becomes translucent once fired. She is interested in the contrast between tattoos on ceramic surfaces and those on soft skin. While she has yet to get her first tattoo, Crissi hopes one day to be as covered in ink as her work. An avid knitter, she grew up in Oregon, and hopes to move back to the West Coast some day soon. Currently Crissi resides in Hartford Connecticut, and will graduate in May 2011 with a BFA from the University of Hartford. She is currently searching for a job for after graduation.
