Sasha Koozel Reibstein


Sasha Koozel Reibstein was born in Boston, MA and raised in Philadelphia, PA, a city whose culture and gritty urban landscape had a significant impact on her aesthetic. She currently resides in San Diego, CA where she creates work that reflects on transformation, mortality and the sublime through sculptures that undulate between soft and hard, alive and static, real and imagined. While primarly sculpting out of clay, Reibstein‘s experimentation and broad use of material, ranging from 24k gold to cosmetic glitter, allow her to create objects that are alchemic, acting as vehicles for psychic teleportation.


Sasha Koozel Reibstein has traveled extensively, working and exhibiting in Germany, Denmark, Hungary and China. Her work has been included in over 80 national and international exhibitions including at The Zentrum fur Keramik in Berlin, Germany, Guldagergaard in Skaelskor, Denmark, NY Arts Magazine and ArtSpace 1 in Beijing, China, Couturier Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, The Institute for Contemporary Art in San Diego, CA, Quint Gallery in La Jolla, CA, The Morris Graves Museum in Eureka, CA, The Attelboro Museum in Attelboro, MA, The Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT, The American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA, MCASD, the San Diego International Airport and The International Mingei Museum in San Diego, CA.
