Irina Salmina

Mess CeramicsCeramicist

Having a background in computer technologies, Tbilisi-based ceramicist Irina Salmina first encountered clay thanks to the well-known ceramicist Gigisha Pachkoria. “I was so passionate about ceramics that I quit my office job and dedicated myself to the craft. My profession has nurtured in me a love of challenges and innovation, helping me to experiment with new sculpting techniques.” In 2017, Irina launched her workshop “Mess Ceramics”, where she tries to erase borders and challenge the traditional perception of ceramics by transforming ceramic works into decorative objects, compositions, sculptures and wall installations. “I have a great interest in working on unusual surfaces and textures.” Irina has participated in a number of local and international symposiums and exhibitions. In 2019, she received an award at the International Symposium of Ceramics, organised by the National Centre of Ceramic Art: Sidi Kacem Jelizi.
