Christine Wagner

Beginning with the basic shapes of the cylinder, cube and cuboid, Christine Wagner builds and turns the sculptural forms of her object vases and containers. Lines, grid-like structures and stamp impressions add rhythm to the surfaces and contrast excitingly with the architectonic austerity. The natural beauty and feel of the clay are the starting point and the means for the design. The ceramist uses iron oxides and paper-thin or multilayered coatings of slip to achieve diverse nuances of color and a characteristic effect of depth in the surfaces. “I’m inspired by the variation of volumes, proportions and surfaces, as well as by the interplay between the form and the changes in the materiality that occur during the firing process,” Christine Wagner explains.
