Your teacher

Tatsiana Shevarenkova is the artist behind Cosset Ceramics.  She is self-taught and primarily focuses on hand-built sculptural ceramics.  Her artistic process is guided by a balance of play and discipline.  

Tatsiana believes that the most satisfying way to learn ceramics is by experimentation.  Using and earthy substance from nature that can take an infinite amount of forms is exciting and something she is grateful for.

The heart of her life is COSSET CERAMICS, where she explores and presents her work.  She mainly uses a combination of hand-building, wheel throwing and slip casting techniques.
