ceramic portfolio
I am studying ceramics in Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn. I discover this world and life and it's domestic part through all the materials. Clay, painting, installations, drawing, filming. But my favorite way to do it is clay.

SAMENESS
In my work I explore people stories, memories and their feelings about it. Contrast and detail of each. I try to find thin line between sameness and otherness of human living in society and trying to find "self" in it. When can we feel empathy to others, is it about going through same experience and situation? When we think we are lonely - is it true? Maybe we could be just thoughtful and attentive if we look at each other and see same.

Series of vessels in different materials (wood, metal, glass, grass, strings), deforming clay, experiment with a goal to illustrate our stories, reflect them in layers, find for each own "language". I want to illustrate that we all have own perception for everything and when we share it - we become closer to understanding each other.


LIE / WRONG
An exhibition project. It tells about conception of lie and wrong (as a feeling or condition). Can I make them as an abstraction, give them impersonal forms relying on my own experience? Exhibition includes a lot of small pieces. Each one is a representation of lie and wrong. Clay, porcelain, glass.


A lot of lies becoming a "lie cake".
World filled with instructions what is wrong and right.
Something unclear we feel when it is wrong.
Massive bowl of wrong and half wrong things.
Something massive wrong we know about world.
Wrong aesthetic
When we know it is wrong even if it looks opposite.
SITE SPECIFIC "stone"
In this project I explore humanisation of stones. Relying on knowledge about stone origin, structure and location I interpreted its cycles of life in conjunction with human impact and importance of nature as a inspiration for human. Stone for me is a mark of a place.

I see an art as a reflection of nature. Art was created layer by layer as stone was. I search for colors, marks and order of applying them on a sculpture. Process similar to million years stone birth. With objects I want to direct viewer eye to hidden nature, unobvious corners of the park, deeper.

Pieces were made in coiling technique, painted with angobes and glazes.


INTERPRITATION
The project was part of our "interpritation" course. We had to choose one object and interpritate it in our own way. But there was one rule. Master gave us 5 words: mith, society, product object, me, knowledge. And we interpritated own object trough each of those 5 words. In the end we made an exhibition in our academy.

My object was FACE.
OBJECT AND ME
each mask represents how i feel my face and what can i feel with it
OBJECT AND MITH
we all make "masks" believing that it brings courage
OBJECT AND PRODUCT DESIGN
cold mask for tired eyes. made exactly for my face
OBJECT AND SOCIETY
a lot of fast one-line "blind" sketches of people together play as one portrait
all the faces I see become one

OBJECT AND KNOWLEDGE

What do we know about face. there is nose, eyes, chicks, mouth. I tried to forget visual memory of face as I know it. And became "blind". What do blind people know about face.
I made 4 portraits being totally blind just touching faces of people whom I had not known or literally never seen . 1 hour 1 person. What do I know about face now. It is just a relief and pieces. Attention to every part. No right or wrong notion. Important is beyond the face.
First year autmn project
We were free to make anything we want. So I just followed my feelings and did some drawings. There is very abstract composition and intuitive way of making.
I used high fire clay for the man figures. Gypsum for plate and rusty wire for constructions
PORCELAIN SET
TABLEWARE
Dishes I have made for my project " L I I V ceramics".
DISH SET
Second project of 1st year in my university. Our task was to make a dish set. During doing the set I got throwing skills, sketching skills and I also diid a lot of glaze researches. Tested a lot of matches. In the end I got the set, very aschetic outside and three coloured inside. High fire clay and glaze.
