    Betsy Birkner works in her studio space at the McColl Center for Visual Arts. Her ceramics deal with feminist issues, and the roles in which women are cast by the world. Described on the McColl Center website, "Through her work, she exploits elements of fashion as vehicle for self-expression and concealment. Her creations are the embodiment of protection and power as evidenced in a series of fantastical coats of armor inspired by deities, royalty, and pop culture icons."
