Kirsten Hassenfeld was born in Albany, New York and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from The University of Arizona, Tucson in 1998. The New York based artist creates extravagantly decorated crystalline sculptures that are crafted predominantly from paper. Kirsten's painstakingly created works revamp precious objects with decidedly un-precious materials and varying scales, making fantasy tangible and calling to question the notion of preciousness. We especially love her delicate drawings which magically transfigure into enchanting 3D installations.
