Agnes Seebass

Artist Statement

"Rooted in 3 countries, my workshop is what makes me feel home regardless of where life takes me.
Entering in the timeless space of creating and fabricating in my studio is what I most love.
In my pieces I aim to transmit a certain calmness and thoughtfulness, while being spontaneous at the same time.
My personal challenge is to maintain a balance between a clear, playful or even intriguing expression on the one hand and a serene simplicity on the other hand.”

-Agnes Seebass
