THE APARTMENT by helga ritsch ceramics: The place for contemporary ceramics in Zurich

You will find a beautiful light-filled room – some steps away from the Kunsthaus Zurich, in the heart of the city:  This is The Apartment by helga ritsch ceramics, Zurich.

It is a place to discover and purchase some of my exclusive works in the intimate setting of my home.

My works of art gain new meaning and relevance through context. Placed with an eye to both beauty and function in my living space that is full of history: My apartment was once the living and working room of the world famous C.G. Jung. I also host special events here, each one is an invitation into my personal and personalized world: You are warmly invited to have a look at it!

THE SHOP is another lovely space where you find my ceramic work in a shop setting. It is also my smaller atelier with a potter wheel and a kiln – yes, I produce my ceramic works also in the heart of Zurich!

This space is situated in the University district in Zurich. Please pass by to feel the vibe of my work and to hold some of my stunning treasures in your hands: You are very welcome!

And btw: Sometimes I offer my space for works from other people, pls have a look at  www.helgaritsch.com for the past and upcoming exhibitions.

For much more photos and inspiration about my work view the Blog!

THE ATELIER in the heart of Soazza is an old stone house from the 16th century with various fascinating rooms: It was once the home for two Capuchin monks and you still feel and breathe the spirit.

Soazza is a wonderful and original village, probably the most beautiful one in the South of Grisons: Surrounded by woods and mountains and spoiled with a fantastic southern climate – exactly what I am looking for and need for my work and inspiration:

The main focus of my work in stoneware or porcelain is the search for simplicity. I am concentrated in simple forms, leading to experiments with repetition with deviation, creating pieces precisely with an eye to unforced perfection. I am interested in the process and the result of the repetition, to see what evolves and changes, either in the works and also in my attitude.

Decoration is more or less kept off, sometimes I am playing with details like threads, marks or random color traces.

MY WAY – a very short version: For a longer one, please check my LinkedIn profile.

2001-2006: Apprenticeship for ceramist
1989-1995: Course of studies at the University of Zurich . Art History/German Philology/Philosophy
1987-1989: Basic studies at ETH Zurich . Architecture Department

from 1995 on: Independent works in communication, art and architecture. I founded two companies, 1996 and 1998: Sold the communication one in 2015, still hold the one for art and architecture.

  • 3 / Work 2008, handbuilt. The bigger vase on the right is 60cm high. I made a series of six different pairs. All sold. I am not only throwing but also working in other techniques. Throwing is all about repetition, you have to training a lot until you can do with the clay what you want - and not the clay tells you what it wants: So years ago I decided to focus on throwing for a while - took me ten years......I will restart with the other possibilities like hand building: Curious about my future.
