Pinch pots by Oksana Klapischak are sourced from nature and formed by hand. Each unique piece is created by the dance among the natural elements of earth, metal oxides, fire, air and water. "I love the magic that occurs when all the elements respond to each other in such a way that a pot looks like it just naturally created itself, resembling forms and textures we find in our natural world."
Klapischak graduated with a BFA in ceramics from Parsons Scholl of Design prior to teaching art for 22 years. She currently lives and teaches ceramics in Santa Fe, NM.
