Ceramics are a communicative matter: they comprise the concepts of touch and use as much as they imply interaction. Whenever Petra Lindenbauer is working with clay, there’s always a counterpart: the clay, the form and an idea.
Her unique pieces sometimes seem like drafting stages in a creative approach to a greater project. At times the ideas may take a life of their own until the object eventually leads the artist. The outcomes are – literally – individual items: Ceramics that stand for themselves.
