Hy, I’m Alina Constantin, a graduate of the University of Arts Bucharest, specializing in ceramics. I was drawn to the ceramic material since adolescence. Specifically to plaster, from which I realized that with his help I could create object’s surfaces from very fine and delicate to some vibrant and rigorous. And here was only a step to discover porcelain, now, my favorite material.

Most times I get inspired by nature, I love animals and their play. I am also attracted to the Asian culture, I particularly like the reasons of the cobalt oxide decor. I believe that the most beautiful ceramic is the chinese blue and white porcelain. Also, I often use geometry in my work.

I pay attention to the practical side of objects, which is very important for an artist and a future ceramic designer. At first, when I’m working at an object, I dedicate myself to its functionality. This is really essential in the process of designing an object. Then I make a difference, putting my ‘handprint’ on the object. The aesthetic part catches the eye first. Most of all I like to think the relationship between the functionality of the object and its decorative elements. Technical problems, small or large, are solved out by working hard, long hours, in the studio, observation of each casting and burnt out.

I see my objects bought by people who appreciate traditional materials. I would like to see them used mostly by young people, who are often content only with accessible materials, such as plastic. I love to see people enjoying my objects.
