Katarzyna Szarmach

product designer

 

I am inspired by the minimalistic simplicity of beauty rendered from nature.
I experiment with the yielding nature of the porcelain by contrasting contradicting traits of the surface like hard and soft, sharp and smooth, heavy and light. It results in the amplified visual tension between the two contraries. My opus is an amalgamation of the exploration of the physicality of the porcelain as a material and how it reacts with light.
I am passionate about the variety of firing processes and how these can change the quintessential nature of the porcelain to create a new visual impact. Exploring and manipulating the chemical characteristics of ceramics enables me to elevate the material until it is perceived with different value.
