Mastering the diva of ceramics

  • • Uta reinterprets porcelain figurines
  • • She uses new techniques such as 3D printing
  • • She gives other artists access to her porcelain facilities

Uta Koloczek’s expressive and at times colourful designs reinterpret classic porcelain figurines. Decorated with gold and highly patterned, her eccentric pugs and chihuahuas nevertheless appear graceful due to the sublime shine that is unique to porcelain. However, the process is “a dirty business,” says Uta, since all the “mixing, sieving and cleaning takes a lot of energy and time” and the material itself is very demanding. “Porcelain is the diva of ceramic materials and is very difficult to master and control,” she says. Nonetheless, it has always been her dream to make a living from her passion. “It all started with a little clay crocodile which I made in primary school, and ever since, this love of ceramics has stayed with me.”

With her colourful and exquisite animals, Uta Koloczek reinterprets classic porcelain figurines. Similarity to nature is not her main concern; eccentricity and exaggeration are the qualities that give these creatures their charm and distinction. Her appreciation for details can be seen in the elaborate hand painted gold patterns and underglaze decoration.
