About me

ZSÓFIA KARSAI
ceramic artist

DLA,
Member of the
International Ceramic Academy (IAC)

ars poetica:

Knowing, seeing and feeling everything that is going on around me in the world, I chose the artistic path of not reflecting, criticising and assessing any of that but rather enabling the viewer and myself to rest a little in this madness. I offer my objects as passageways towards introspection.
