Kristina Riska, Ceramic Bubble Urn III B Finland 2015


Bubble Urn lII B by Kristina Riska is a handbuilt ceramic urn created in the coil method. This modern sculptural form was created in 2015 for a special exhibit at the Finnish consulate in Washington, DC in September of 2015. Kristina Riska is a ceramic artist recognized for her unorthodox large scale pottery and artworks inspired by nature and the properties of light and shadow. Though many of her objects resist traditional practice and can solely be considered objets d’art, she has also managed to incorporate her unconventional designs into objects for every-day use. Riska first endeavored upon ceramic artistry as a student at the Department of Ceramic Art at the University of Art and Design, Finland in the 1980s. Defying the typical output of the student body, namely articles of pottery made for daily use, Riska instead took a vigorous, physical approach to her work. She would, as she does now, begin to conceptualize her works on paper, her designs ultimately coming to fruition spontaneously as she worked. She prioritized artistry above functionality and despite the demanding and time-consuming process she engaged in, her impressive yield was that of unique ceramic works that transcended the boundaries of art and design.
