Born in Poland, sculptress Edyta Szymanska comes from an artistic background. Her father was a painter and writer – his work informing her sensibilities throughout her childhood. Edyta trained as a Physiotherapist but started working seriously in ceramics in 2002. She opened a studio, became potter to a “Viking Group” and amongst the works she completed were reconstructions of Middle Ages ceramic sculptures and implements.
Working mainly with clay Edyta creates both small figurative and large scale ceramic pieces. Interpreted through colour, texture and form, Edyta uses the human figure as the vehicle through which to express beauty, line and grace. Her principal medium is clay, but she has recently combined both ceramic and steel to create her artwork.
