Welcome

Carina Claassens has been working as an artist & visual designer for the past 15 years. You can also visit and see the beautifully handcrafted ceramic pieces at Clay Cafe Nederland, Haarlo.  "Claassens creates works rooted in bold memories of a southern African childhood which reflect a deep spiritual reverence for nature, subtly contrasted in the delicacy possible in ceramic. Her feminism is a theme manifested exquisitely in both her functional and purely aesthetic creations. They conjure whimsy and a playful sense of the magical in the eye and heart of the viewer who are drawn to respond physically to the tactile quality of these transformative pieces."
