Says Katarina of her Amphora sculptures: “I half-jokingly describe my amphora vessels as ‘classical meets wabi-sabi’. I take shapes from ancient Roman and Grecian vessels and apply a finish that celebrates the maker’s mark, like dimples left by pinching at clay or scrapes from hand-shaping. I deliberating don’t aim for perfection, instead an overall feeling of harmony within the piece.”
Most of Katarina’s ceramic pieces ‘grow’ slowly over a period of up to a week, a process that allows her to step back and observe where a piece intends to go. Raw oxides and porcelain slip are used on many of her works, which allows for the tactile surface to remain.
The Tipsy Vessel can hold her liquor well as she’s watertight.
