Claudia Biehne is a German artist that produces artistically crafted porcelain. She says that the possibilities that it offers a designer in our day and age as a material to work with are almost inexhaustible.
Biehne explores this new cosmos with a lot of keenness to experiment and the courage to transcend boundaries. This designer also attaches high importance to always approaching this challenging material in a fresh and intuitive manner, something which results in very contrasting creations. While the pieces of her Lumos group look extremely delicate, her Vulcanoids have a rather solid appearance, and can often be moved around only by using considerable physical strength. Adopting the basic shape of a bowl, her lighting objects transmute this everyday item into something new intended to release sensitive energies in the beholder.
The possibilities offered by the material are endless for artists and to explore this universe, is the interest of Claudia Biehne. In public studio in Leipzig visitors are surprised with a complex structure of work.
Provocative, wild and eccentric are not the attributes ascribed to the ceramic. Many first have pots, vases or jugs in mind – but ceramic is more. The ceramics are used to express different artistic positions.
While some works are rather stimulate quiet way to think, others are provocative and politically: misshaped dogs who criticize how people deal with nature – or a man-sized installation that drips apparently of blood and oil – and thus denounces the exploitation of oil reserves denounces. Everything is possible in the ceramic – beyond pots and plates.
