Web Description: 
The subject of Ann Wolff’s blown and engraved bowls is the life of women, and her art rarely strays from that exploration. The relationships between women as friends and as mothers and daughters, domestic life, and the role of women in society deeply concern her. She says, “It is natural to take oneself as one’s starting point. The situation of women partly determines who I am and leads me to pose particular questions.”
