Hana Vasak is ceramic artist who embraces creating sculptural vessels. Her ongoing development in exploring new forms often takes visual inspiration from sculpture, natural forms, ancient pottery and her travels. Each piece made has evolved from another and allows Hana to continue refining her studio based practice to create pieces that merge sculpting and hand building techniques and that subtly play with shape, form and texture.
This collection of sculptural vessels borrows and draws inspiration from natural textures of rock and earth, decaying leaves and bark . Many of the forms reappropriate an abstracted landscape, silhouettes of botanical forms, rock formations and sandy shallow creeks. Visually inspired by the expansive landscapes and places I visited during my travels through Europe last year, I wanted to reflect upon these as well as my surrounding environment at home. I was drawn to exploring and developing a body of work that embraced the concept of raw materials, exposing the bare clay, creating textured surfaces and bringing together a colour palette that captured those soft and natural earthy tones in these remembered and present landscapes as well as Kathryn’s paintings.
