Robin Grebe received her BFA in Ceramics from the Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA in Ceramics/Glass from the Tyler School of Art, Massachusetts. She has been instructor at Rhode Island School of Design and the Pilchuck School.

Grebe uses cast glass, ceramic glazes, and transparent enamels to create her monolithic and allegorical human forms. Originally inspired by Greek cycladic fertility goddesses, Grebe’s sculptures seem both fragile and strong. To her, they illustrate the paradoxes of human life.

Grebe’s work has been shown in Europe and the United States and can be found in many private and public connections worldwide, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Corning Museum of Glass, and the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.
