E. Calder Powel is a ceramic-based sculptor. She began her studies in mathematics before additionally taking up the study of art, concentrating in ceramics and sculpture. Her work transforms the mathematically perfect into forms that are one-of-a-kind. Mathematical constraints serve to guide her artistic creation; by understanding essential mathematical constraints, her mind is freed to use her full artistic intuition and creativity in order to push the boundaries of the many mathematical fields and expand them into unified sculptural forms. Mathematics acts as the template that frames her personal vision, guiding her towards the inherent beauty of the purity and truth underlying the world.
E. Calder Powel has a BA in Mathematics and BA in Art from Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
