Poetica has two of Selvin’s pieces -both date to 2005 era of her work. Every day objects that transcend time - that feel found vs created.

“Best known for works such as *Nolinas* in which hand-made vessels are displayed on shelves, [her] pieces speak to Selvin’s fascination with the form of the vessel — a theme that has sustained her attention for many years. The treatment of the surfaces, with her use of underglaze, screened images and text, creates a feeling of timelessness, as if the objects have been unearthed rather than newly created in Selvin’s Berkeley studio.”

— Lindsey Kouvaris, Curator, de Saisset Museum
