Meet A Ceramicist Who Puts Her Head & Heart Into Her Work: Renate Hattinger





The following pieces of Renate Hattinger's were exhibited at Blickfang 2007 in Kongresshaus, Zurich:

Think Tank



Material: porcelain, gold plated, luster
Dimension (H/W/D): 15x11x10,5cm
Approx. $173.00 USD
Think Tank in nacre version, pink version and blue version available for purchase here.

Think Tank is part of the series Human Interior. Human Interior are porcelain containers in form of the central human organs, heart and brain. The highly specialized organs heart and brain designed by nature are symbols for life, intelligence, love.

The invisible inside becomes visible and gets a concrete emotional meaning by careful processing and refinement of the object's surface. The objects are not only to be admired on pedestals and in showcases but to be used and filled. This perhaps allows an irreverent, but hopefully humorous usage of my creations.


Golden Heart:


Golden Heart
Material: porcelain, gold plated, luster
Dimension (H/W/D): 13 x 15 x 14 cm
Approx $317.00 USD

In Renee's own words:
After my education at the HTBLA Ortweinplatz in Graz in the department of ceramics, I studied product design for ceramics with Matteo Thun at the University for Applied Arts in Vienna.

As a ceramist I work with different materials in ceramic technology. In the last years, however, I mainly specialized in the production of unique pieces and small series of porcelain.

I consider myself neither an artist in the classical sense nor a designer. I'd rather like to create a connection between the two disciplines. This means that the artistic expression of a product is more important to me than its ergonomic usefulness, I however create small art works which can also be used (e.g. as a box).

You can buy Think Tank and Golden Heart here at Pure Austrian Design's online shop.
