In his practice Adam combines the video and ceramic art. Real ceramics objects mingle together with their animate images creating specific context in which they are percieved ‘The vision of objects freed from the shell of permanence and gravitationsal force is materialized in a video image and virtual space’ says the artist.
He is a Head of Department of Interdisciplinary Activities at the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass at the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław.
Monika graduated from the Faculty of Sculpture of Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. She uses sculptural installations as her means of expression. There is a short distance between animal and human nature in her art as she focuses on the study of the figure in relation to the surrounding enviroment. She freely crosses the borders between the materials, using in her installations ceramics and animal bones for the sculptures together with found objects.
She lives and works in Faenza, Italy.
Antonina focuses on contrasts, her interests and realisations shift between the known and the unknown, between the tangible and ephemeral, between light and darkness, white and black. She makes glass objects and installations.
She works at her alma mater, the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław at the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass.
Marta graduated from the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. In her work she uses animal themes that have been an important part of art for ages. For the inspiration and the themes of her works she looks at the paintings of great masters, selecting the animals present there and incorporating them as the main characters of her work.
She lives and works in Düsserdolf, Germany.
Karina’s interests go far beyond the material itself. Although she started as a designer, through her latest works she analyzes the condition of contemporary society and the surrounding world. Her art shifted away from the product and its material, physical form. In her practice ‘Form follows Thought’.
She works at her alma mater,the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław at the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass.
Monika graduated from the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. She literally and figuratively breaks the moulds. She is interested in exploring and questioning the processes commonly attached to making. She actively seeks for imperfections, believing it to be the only way to bare the true nature of materials.
Aneta graduated from the Faculty of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and the Royal Collage of Art in London.
She is fascinated by form in nature and natural materials. She explores material qualities and its combinations, mixing natural and human made materials together.
She lives and works in London, UK.
Monika graduated from the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław.
She rejects the use of colour being primaly interested in a form and the sculptural features of glass. Her inspirations come from the shapes present in nature that she converts into glass sculptures. She is fascinated by a structures that make up living organisms.
Stanisław uses the intrinsic properties of glass to the maximum. In his works he emphasizes the best of what a material such as glass can offer, playing with colours and light. He understands its transparency, its form and explores it at its best.
He is a Head of the Studio of Glass Design at the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass at the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław
Kamila graduated from the Faculty of Ceramics and Glass of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, although she is more a sculptor. She works in all scales from small, handsize pieces to huge installations filling up entire rooms. She uses clothing, clay and, probably most important, sensations, feelings and time as her media.
She works and lives in Galveston, USA.
