The Ode To | Fanny Ollas | Artist Portrait

Fanny Ollas

Fanny Ollas is the person behind the wonderfully imaginative vases in the series 'Emotional Pieces'. She started out as a fashion designer, but has since changed her career to work with ceramics and sculpture. It was a welcome change of focus to a new material that can convey a naive and humoruos aspect with a tendency to evoke emotions and sympathy.

"For me the clay is a metaphor for both the body and the mind and through the clay it is possible for me to translate my inner world into material. I see my sculptures and objects as bodies or characters and to me clay has a lot of personality; it can be both fragile, beautiful, rough and clumsy at the same time."

Fanny Ollas' exclusive collection for The Ode To is called ”Emotional pieces” and it is part of a larger work to try to capture different mental experiences or emotions into functional objects. See Fanny Ollas' collection of playful and surrealistic vases.
