Nausika was artist of birth. The art academy gave her what she needed and she began her own ceramics atelier. She works in a cosy natural studio in her garden, surrounded by flowers, trees, fields and orchards. For inspiration, she just has to look through her window.
Her studio is a peaceful place where you can discover beautiful and tiny treasures of nature. Everywhere you can see dried seedpods, branches covered with moss, wild flowers and plants. All these natural forms and shapes are a source of inspiration for her botanical stories.
Her work is inspired by the love and wonder for nature. She’s not a woman of words, she speaks with her hands. A soft language with gentle, delicate and joyful whispers. She turns clay into objects that are like rays of sunlight, shining through the smallest gaps.
She wants to create work that arouse curiosity and wonder for the natural world. Her work is an invitation to look closer and to really observe nature attentively.
“Add beauty to add wonder”, is her motto.
You can see it in her jewelry ; the amazing variety of nature in all its shapes, textures and colors. By combining pure porcelain with some fantasy unique pieces come to life! On the other hand, her ceramic sculptures simply refer to: us. Not as we are, but as we should be: taking a pause in this ever rushing world. These female figures are wandering in a poetic world of birds and flowers.
She’s married to a nice husband and they have two daughters. She loves hot chocolate with cinnamon, homemade herbal tea and a good book, sunlight on her face, the scent of the garden after the rain, picking flowers, walking in the woods and gardening.
She loves to spend time in her garden and nature where she can notice the shifting of the wonderful seasons. She reflects on the abundance and meaning of nature and how it affects our daily life. Embracing the seasons will open our eyes to the small wonders of the everyday and invites us to consciously care for this life that surrounds us and to live at a slower pace.
John Muir couldn’t say it any better: “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul.”
