Laura Katalin Kossack | Artist

She was born in Hungary to a Hungarian mother and a German father, and grew up in both countries. Being raised in a family of artists, sh e discovered ceramics at an early age. At the age of 17, she decided to set off on her own, driven by the desire to open herself up to the world, and settled first in France and then in Luxembourg.

In 2009, she began studying Art at ENSAV La Cambre in Brussels, graduating with a Master’s in 2014. This nomadic lifestyle and all these travels and life experiences have certainly influenced and coloured her work. She is currently living in Luxembourg, at the very heart of Europe, where she is pursuing her mission of trying to construct a path across walls.

My Philosophy | What I do ?

Beyond the walls - I am trying to build a path across walls.

I draw my inspiration from questions around freedom

First I was obsessed with porcelain. I love the purity and how thin, fluid and translucent you can make the finished object feel. It was a big challenge trying to master this medium, as I also wanted the pieces I made to be perfect.

I have an obsession with production. It makes me happy and satisfies me.

I learned how to make moulds and produce objects in large quantities. This is one of my favourite techniques. It allows me to be critical and to convey my personal message about society. This material helps me to show history and tell the stories which are in my head mind.

My initial obsession with purity has changed since I started using colour such as pigments mixed in porcelain. I also love stoneware. It has made me open ed my mindup. So I use the material which is the most appropriate to make my declarations in my work.

I am crazy about what I do.

As a female artist, I feel as if I am giving birth, it’s as if creation is winning a victory over death
