What was once the principal’s office at Marshall High School is now the studio of Nina Kawar. Nina’s work in clay is largely about healing. After a change in her life path, a clay class taken in the final semester of her BFA experience led her to graduate school in clay at Clemson University. In May 2016, Nina was presented with the opportunity to move into Marshall High Studios. When she entered the space, she immediately knew she had found a home for herself and her work.
Nina’s creative practice explores and aims to push the boundaries of porcelain through the process of carving and delicate forms. Many of her influences stem from psychology, biology, and spirituality. Today, Nina produces two creative bodies of work. One includes her porcelain sculptures, which are intuitively carved and grounded in surrendering, embracing the flaws, and trusting the process. These forms are often large scale and organic in nature. Her other body of work is called “Pure Ritual” which includes porcelain and wood meditation tools, sculptures, and jewelry.
Visitors to Nina’s studio are welcomed to explore her working space and a display her porcelain sculptures and products from her “Pure Ritual” line. Nina also offers one-on-one or small group clay classes.
