Michael Klapthor has been working in clay for the past 10 years, featuring work throughout Georgia. He is currently enrolled in Callanwolde's clay studio assistantship program, teaching classes and creating whimsical anthropomorphic sculptures. These works create stories about human nature represented through animals and their belongings, striving to find balance between base instincts in a modern society.
