Latch Key

Whitney Sharpe, Oakland-based artist of the Latch Key, utilizes clay as a conduit, building three dimensional forms to embody the human experience. Drawn to clay per its volatile yet mutable nature, her art practice explores the relational and ritual aspects of materiality by challenging the limitations of medium and skill. Whitney’s multi-decade relationship with clay has produced an understanding that in its variability, she has just as much control over clay as it has over her. This conference is the foundation of Sharpe’s work.

Whitney Sharpe is an Oakland-based artist with a handcrafted ceramic studio where she makes all of her stunning wall hangings, jewelry and home decor under The Latch Key brand.
