Prip, a sculptor, is the daughter of Danish master metalsmith, John Prip, and was lucky enough to attend the Rhode Island School of Design when her father taught there. Her recent work is an exploration of scale and new materials, allowing her to work out the challenges that large-scale sculpture represents. She has always been influenced by nature’s surprising color combinations, rich textures and mysterious organic forms.
