January 21 to February 18, 2001 :
Stefanie Hering - A Woman’s Vision of Clay


Poetical lucidity and modernity of design have become the hallmark of Stefanie Hering's work in porcelain. After taking her diploma as a master potter in 1992 she used the traditional material of porcelain to develop her very personal ceramic style whose purist idiom as attracted worldwide attention and won her various awards. Stefanie Hering’s creations achieve extremes of elegance, combining the material’s potentials of translucency and its seeming fragility with quite unusual forms and volume. Today she is an internationally acknowledged artist whose work can be found in important private and public collections.
