Cathy Fleckstein


The emphasis of my ceramic work is to be found in the creation of wall-plates. Development of plastic works, such as container forms, run parallel.

I understand my work as a reflection of internal processes and impressions in the exchange with my environment.

It concerns to me to after-feel naturally growing procedures and to let grow forms in a dialog with the material. I rely largest part on the energising model of nature with their crystalline and organic forms and structures.
