Hannah Vorrath-Pajak: Tending Tradition

Ceramic artist Hannah Vorrath-Pajak investigates the development and tradition of German folk pottery in the Barossa Valley and surrounding areas in the ninteenth century. In response to this research, she makes porcelain domestic objects that tap into the long-standing history of her chosen medium, with an aim to contextualise the historical within contemporary objects. Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is an Australian potter and visual artist based in Kaurna Country, South Australia. She works in porcelain, making wheel thrown functional ware and exhibition-based objects that explore ceramic traditions, craft skills and her cultural heritage. Hannah has undertaken residencies in Tasmania and Japan, finding great value in connecting with other practitioners and learning a variety of ceramic techniques.
