Biography
Agnieszka graduated from The Institute of Fine Arts at the Marie Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, specializing in graphic in 1989. She is a member of the Polish Artists‘ Association of Applied Arts. In 1997, after a few years of focusing on making silver jewelry, along with her husband, she became fascinated with a new material-clay. 'We became passionately immersed into the knowledge and technical skills, in the range of shapes, the firing method and ceramic colorants', artist answered when asked about new ceramic field. From that moment Agnieszka started to explore boundless world of ceramics, composing more and more challenging forms, which are stunning with their size and complexity. Nowadays she also combining clay with other materials, such as colorful glass, silver, amber and many natural stones. 

Artist Statement: 

„I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had 
no words for.” 
Georgia O'Keeffe 

It was always difficult for me to write about art. I found usual questions truly challenging. Why art? they ask. Well, it was always inside of me, pulsing and just waiting to emerge, gain a physical form. When it finally does, it is flowing freely and spontaneously, like an unstoppable brisk stream. 

To be honest, talking about my main medium- clay, makes me the most comfortable. It is 
profoundly close to me. Thanks to its softness, when i hold it in my hands i interact with it and it interacts with me, it can be subdued to my vision. I see subtle feminine nature in it and at the same time it is rigid and raw. I can never fully tame her, because after shaping it, fire takes control over her. The results are always unpredictable. 

Clay also gives me the freedom to express myself deeper, because I can merge sculpture with 
painting and drawing. Working with colors, shapes and patterns keeps me interested all the time. 
However, there are some limitations, which I find challenging and fascinating. When I plunge into the 
process of creation I must remember about technical qualities of clay, which change formation steps. 
As for my inspirations, one of the most influential is transformation of the clay. In this process all elements are involved. The element of earth in the form of clay itself, connecting with water while shaping. Then the element of air penetrating it with a drying touch and passing the final act to fire. 

Most of my inspirations are taken from the nature. I am absolutely captivated by organicity of 
nature and softness of lines observed in the physique of animals and plants. I would like to share my 
insights about their different auras and to show their inward significance, other than focusing on 
outward appearance only. 

On the other hand, great masters of art, like Antoni Gaudi, gave me lots of courage in my 
work. They taught me not to be afraid of bold projects and helped me move far beyond the boundaries of my imagination. Also, art nouveau and art deco have a great impact on me. Mainly its undulating lines and floral motifs. 

One of my biggest dreams as an artist, is to know my medium through and through and to master all the possible techniques. I hope that my adventure with art will flourish to the end, because: 

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.” 
― Émile Zola
