What? Clay Art & Curios
Evelin is a ceramic artist and sculptor, working in hand-built clay, thrown stoneware, and multimedia assemblage. Her works range in scale from the iconic figurative sculptures she has become known for to delicate, wearable jewellery. Her home and adjacent studio are surrounded by delightful gardens, featuring a cacophony of flowers and engaging sculptural surprises.
Evelin began working in clay in 1990, and “learned her craft” through a three-year major in Ceramics at the School of Art, University of Manitoba. Following a month as a guest artist at the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia, she founded her studio, What? Clay Art & Curios, in Winnipeg Beach to further develop her creative works.
An avid bookworm, organic gardener, nature lover, activist, (and grandmother of five), Evelin is also a “beach bum.” Her art is typified by an engagingly tactile sense of play and an expressive “exploration of the curious.” Her enigmatic sculptures draw viewers in and share idiosyncratic stories with them. Her creations are in numerous private collections, she (happily) fulfills commissions, and her works are available through select galleries.
During the WAVE tour (and at other times by prior appointment), she delights showing others her studio and sharing her art as well as her process.
