Nina Kawar is an artist whose creative practice explore and aims to push the boundaries of porcelain and paper through the process of carving and delicate forms. The elusive and often fragile works derive from an intrigue with the human condition. Many of her influences stem from nature’s mesmerizing patterns and the many facets within biology, psychology, and spirituality. The foundation of her work is grounded in healing, awareness, and a reflection on the temporality of this fragile life.
The process of creation for Nina has always been a powerful place of meditation and surrendering to the moment. Creating from an intuitive place, each piece allows space for her to let go of control, listen and be a channel for consciousness and evolutionary growth.
