All about ceramics

  • • Eglė feels she could explore ceramics her entire life
  • • She combines old firing methods with modern technologies
  • • She cares most about the idea, not the technical execution

To Eglė Einikytė-Narkevičienė, ceramics is more important than any other art form. After trying out different media, she couldn’t find anything that came close. Working with ceramics allows her to be a painter, sculptor and graphic artist all at once, since clay can encompass it all. She decorates ceramic tiles, and creates interior details, sculptures, jewellery, pictures on wood, elegant boxes, plates and vases. In her works you can often see the influence of nature and man, images of which are subtly painted on the surfaces of plates and other objects. She combines transparent surfaces with massive shapes, elegant graphics with heavy sculptures, and matt surfaces with glossy glazes.

One Size

With this installation of stoneware sculptures, Eglé seeks to draw people’s attention to their relationship with the environment. People with seemingly similar body sizes become different though the acquisition of different experiences and the effects of the external environment, which could be industrial or technological. The shapes are synthetically clean-cut, like factory parts or modelling clay strips, capable of taking on any form.

Vessels with birds

These two distorted jugs are handmade from faience. The fired forms were finished with a milk-white underglaze and finally with detailed pencil-like drawings of birds and birdcages. Eglé really enjoys graphic drawing, finding it helps her relax after making big sculptures.

Pink

The intention behind this stoneware and porcelain composition was to awaken people's feelings. Through this sculptural dynamic form, and by using colour and various ceramic techniques, Eglé wanted to evoke people’s imagination and make them think about finding answers to various existential questions.
