About the Artists
Dana Pecoraro founded The Midnight Orange in 2008 and for the past decade has been caring for tender hearts one bespoke sculpture at a time. She feels her work isn’t about loss, but about life and love and loss co-exists among both. Through clay she aims to capture the spectrum of human emotion from bright to raw, and touch the difficult paths life lays before us. Her sculptures are beloved by grieving families worldwide, and are used by therapists who most often incorporate them into sand tray therapy to aid in the path of healing.
Dana lives in a quiet little town in New York, right between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. She and her husband are both full time artists and they have two beautiful daughters.
