Heike Braun – Ceramics
My work is mainly decorative, but also functional. The forms are constructed from slabs, wheel thrown, coiled or any combination of those.
There are imperfections in the forms. Some are marks from the process of construction left visible and others are added intentionally – all to add character to each piece. The shapes are understated to act as a canvas for a strong palette of colours.
I am inspired by the technical quality of traditional craftsmanship and the energy and freedom of big city graffiti.
