The work of Zimra Beiner, a Toronto, Canada, native who is currently a full-time Instructor in Ceramics at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, is a series of abstract sculptures that will at times appear oddly familiar. That is because some of them are modelled after everyday objects such as lamps, stools, tableware and more. By taking on such mundane items, Zimra Beiner reflects on life as it passes him by.

Zimra Beiner writes, "Looking, translating and making are continuously mixed together in a loop in which the boundary between art and life become tangled. The everyday is interpreted, re-contextualized and abstracted as a reflection of life passing through me." Through his sculptures, Zimra Beiner is able to connect with his audience on an emotional level.
