Sharing her love of clay

  • • Susanne's ceramics are a great example of wabi-sabi aesthetics
  • • Clay makes her feel grounded and soothed
  • • She enjoys discovering her audience's take on her work

Susanne Worschech grew up in a family of creative individuals, from illustrators and graphic designers to musicians. She first studied art to become a teacher and then fine arts. When she discovered clay, she immediately embraced it. Susanne's work explores form and colour theories from the Bauhaus style, whose specific rules she adhered to at the beginning of her career. "I believe that the fixed structures helped me organise myself." With time, Susanne's interest in imperfection and the senses began to emerge in her work. The Japanese teaching of wabi-sabi supported her in her approach, and she dealt extensively with techniques like kintsugi and raku. It is Susanne's passion to share her love of clay with other people, whether through lectures, ceramic workshops in her studio, or at ceramic dinners with professional chefs.

The basket bowl is mounted from stoneware ceramics in the shape of a semicircular bowl. It resembles wickerwork due to the recesses. In addition to being ivory-colored, the bowl is also painted brown and copper green on the inside.
