Carina Claassens: Exploring Nature, Memory, and Empowerment

In my ceramic odyssey, I navigate the intersection of nature, recollection, and empowerment. My vessels are whispers of bold African memories, echoed in delicacy possible in ceramic. Femininity, the heartbeat of my work, takes form in the ethereal.

Each piece, a unique canvas of harmony, is meticulously shaped from raw clay. A union of functionality and aesthetic lures the soul. My "P.O.D.S" collection, a testament to life's resilience, beckons a journey of transformation.

"Cosmic Reverie" unveils stoneware galaxies, reflecting the cosmos's enigmatic dance. In "Empowerment in Clay," I raise my voice for #MyBodyMyChoice, shaping symbols of defiance and empowerment in the clay's soul.

Step into my world and unearth augmented realities in "CeramicAR," an interactive portal to my vision.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey. I hope that my ceramics bring joy and a renewed appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us all.
