All creatures great and small

  • • Agnė has been working with ceramics for 23 years
  • • She’s still fascinated by the possibilities of ceramics
  • • Her world is full of fantastic creatures

At first, Agnė Šemberaitė wanted to study graphics but decided to devote herself to ceramics because of its versatility. After her studies at Vilnius Art Academy, she started to participate in exhibitions and symposiums, following the professional path of a ceramic artist. She has been walking this path for more than 20 years and is still fascinated by the possibilities of ceramics. Her work is three-dimensional, playing with shapes, but she also makes graphic traces on her dishes using her painting skills. Her works are thoughtful and with a touch of humour. Sometimes they resemble small sculptures, where fantastic creatures tell mysterious stories. Those stories can be found on her dishes, plates, vases or teapots, which are decorative, original, and full of joy. Her world is full of characters - sometimes humans, sometimes animals, and even more often – hybrids of humans and animals.

Swarm

This ceramic sculpture has been hand built from stoneware and finished with glaze and pigments. The design of the sculpture is inspired by the notion of swarms in nature. The phenomenon of a swarm, a whole that is made up of countless individual elements, has always made Agne Šemberaitė feel admiration and fear at the same time.
