Creative challenges

  • • Agnė decided to pursue ceramics while at school
  • • She enjoys the unpredictability of ceramics
  • • Her works explore abstract and human forms

The interest in ceramics was sparked by Agnė Kondrataitė's mother. The artist grew up in a family of architects and while following her studies, she visited a studio of a famous Lithuanian ceramicist with her mother and her fascination with pottery has not faded since. She works with white and red clay, with various glazes, boldly experimenting, coating works with gold, using plaster or wire. Agnė does not only create dishes, but panels, tiles, lamps, pots, furniture handles, and sculptures. Since the ceramicist doesn’t use a ring wheel, all of her creations have clearly visible handprints. It gives them human warmth and uniqueness. Her works are modern and elegantly designed. Her designs play with different themes, shapes and original forms, making them perfect for contemporary interiors.
