I – Prongs – Ute Grossman


Ute Grossman was born in Dresden ,Germany in 1960. Having originally studied Chemical Engineering, she gravitated towards the arts with studies in painting and graphics at the  Academy of Fine Arts, Dresden in 1998/1999. She became a member of the  Association of Artists as a freelance ceramicist in 2003 and has since developed a considerable portfolio of ceramic vessels and sculptural objects. Her early work also involved doing mosaic sculptures in public places. All her ceramic art still displays mosaic aspects, but are now also mixed with raku, which has become a more prominent feature over the last three years.

Recently she has also introduced porcelain clay with finely structured graphic surfaces. Nearly all her vessels are asymmetrical with playful proportions and when combined with the vivacious mixture of colour palettes and textural lines, serve to create striking pieces of ceramic art. Ute claims her work now has either humorous portraits which describe interpersonal relationships or obvious abstracted portraits which explain higher social contexts.

Within the last three years, I concentrated mostly on the Raku-technique.. These are either humorous portraits which describe interpersonal relationships or obvious abstracted portraits which explain higher social context.

    I saw a post on Pinterest and repinned. As I was looking at this site, I was in awe. These are beyond beautiful. They are amazing. As a new potter, this was not pinned to my post of pottery I hope to do someday, rather to the post of “inspiration/admiration”. Truly spectacular.
