Betsheva 'Betty' Roytburd was born in Odessa, Ukraine in 1989 and lives and works in New York City. Her family’s immigration to the United States in the year 2000 resulted in the leaving behind of many possessions including precious objects, among them her grandmother’s Soviet-made Egg-Cup collection, which Betty ate from and played with early in her youth. Years later Roytburd revisited her childhood memories of imbuing the egg cups with life, creating her own series of egg cups which fully embody the cast of anthropomorphic characters she believed her grandmother's collection to be. Fittingly, Roytburd's idiosyncratic approach to ceramics merges the sense of immediacy, play, and freedom children bring to the material with the permanence and refinement afforded to her as an adult reflecting on the time, experiences, and objects that inspired her.
