EARTH ELEMENT LAB ceramics studio
My name is Agnė and I create under the name of earth element lab. After graduating in Cultural History and Anthropology I was drawn back to ceramics, something that I used to do in childhood years. This primal craft and direct contact with earth captivated me.
Now I work in a shared studio space, in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I make various ceramic objects using hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques. I experiment with stoneware, earthenware clay or porcelain.
Each piece is unique, functional with a focus on simplicity and has a natural, soft feel to it. Muted colours and earthy tones enhance the natural characteristics of clay.
This choice of aesthetics was highly influenced by Northern nature, the contrast between harsh winters and warm homes. Time I spent in the Arctic regions still gives me an inspiration for creative work.
I also take photographs and it is possible to purchase some of my photo prints in the e-shop.
P.S. quite often you will see two white dogs, while browsing here, meet Alaska and Elne, two samoyeds and my companions;)
