Helene Kitchmair was born in 1981 and currently lives and works in Austria. She interned at several potters and ceramists in Scotland before attending a college in Germany where she learned the fundamental ceramic techniques. Helene graduated in 2014 and went on to open her studio in 2015. Kitchmair’s designs play with textures, volume and dimension, focusing on the interplay between form and surface.
Helene aims to integrate mixed media and found objects with ceramics. Her artwork is displayed in exhibitions and collections and she has received many awards at influential competitions. Helene takes pieces in their original function and gives them an upgrade, adding value and transforming them into a new context.
