Peggy Breidenbach is an Indianapolis-based ceramic artist and educator. Her sculptural work mines her own life experiences – growing-up, mothering, loss, aging and the fragile beauty of now – to not only better understand her humanity, but also to remind viewers of theirs.   In addition to time in her studio, her practice includes journaling, reading, poetry and time outdoors. Her ceramic forms reference those found in nature – seeds, bones, stones and fossils – artifacts of the living world. By enlarging them to elevate their beauty and impact, they become potent metaphors for themes she aims to explore.


Peggy came to ceramics as a second career and has developed her craft over many years of university and art center classes, numerous workshops and much trial and error. She has taught ceramics at the Indianapolis Art Center since 2003. She regularly exhibits her work in shows in Indiana and beyond. Her website is
