THE SHOWROOM is a lovely bright space in the University district Zurich where you find my ceramic work. It is also my smaller atelier with a potter wheel and a kiln – yes, I really produce my ceramic works in the heart of 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!
Sometimes I offer my space for works from other people, pls have a look at www.helgaritsch.com for the past and upcoming exhibitions.
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.
For much more photos and inspiration about my work view the Blog!
MY WORK – The main focus of my work in porcelain and sometimes in stoneware is the visual search for simplicity and silence.
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.
