Klaudia Levin was born and raised in Bavaria, and moved to the United States twenty years ago. She began her artistic career in Newton, Massachusetts and subsequently studied for nearly ten years at the Harvard Ceramic Program. She recently relocated to Silver Spring with her husband and two children.
Klaudia works on reduction firing, and is a nationally known expert in Raku. She turns functional pieces of attractive balance and weight on the wheel, and occasionally hand builds her forms to extend asymmetry and negative space. Klaudia’s pieces are inspired by nature and her surroundings, and capture the shape, texture, and free light play of the urban outdoors.
