Claire Falkenstein was an Oregon-born sculptor, painter, print-maker, and jewlery designer.  After graduating from the University of California at Berkely in 1930, Falkenstein continued to work in California’s Bay Area until moving to Paris in 1950, where she developed her craft by using found objects and inexpensive, nontraditional materials.  She moved to Venice, CA in 1963, where she built an oceanfront home/studio and started receiving many high profile commissions from the city of Los Angeles for large public art pieces, fountains, and sculptures.  She accomplished too much in her time to all be talked about here but we’ve included some images of her prints, watercolor, and sculptures below.  There’s plenty of information out there to do your own research about her if you’re also fascinated with her work!
