Chris Salas

Chris Salas is a queer, non-binary, Xicanx ceramics artist and educator who lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Having many marginal identities draws them to look closely at the undesirable and the discarded and to investigate their relationship to the desired and the mainstream. Salas makes sculptural forms and vessels that question traditional functionality and conventional ideas of beauty through process-oriented work that focuses on texture, tactility, and imperfection.
