Rebecca Hutchinson's complex paper clay pieces evoke the natural world by creating patterns and repetitions often found there. Using materials such as fired and unfired porcelain, old clothing, branches, and industrial surplus, she combines her skills in paper-making and ceramics to create things that exceed the limitations of one medium alone, especially in the large scale that's possible in her work.

Hutchinson's shows have included groupings of giant hanging pods, forests of crocheted paper-clay vines, or bunches of overgrown flower-like forms that feel freshly gathered from a giant's field and hung to dry. With these objects, she celebrates the "complexity of engineering" and the inexorable force for survival in the natural world.​

Rebecca Hutchinson is a Professor of Ceramics at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She has shown her work nationally and internationally, and is included in many collections and museums worldwide.
