Based in Stock Newington, Aneta Regel creates her ceramic art in The Chocolate Factory, a former sweets manufacturer transformed from an artist community studio, considered now as one of the major innovative creation centres in London.
Aneta Regel was born in 1976 in Poland, where she graduated from Royal College of Art in 2006 in glass and ceramic.
Rejecting the traditional idea of “potter”, Aneta Regel considers herself a ceramic sculptor, in perfect symbiosis with the pieces of nature she creates. Regel believes that her work should be abstract, creating a kind of equivalence to the natural world rather than trying to describe it.
From plants to rivers, the artist intends to capture her subjects’ energies and emotions. Moving away from functional sculpture, Aneta Regel is distinguished in her approach and practice of ceramics by bringing a very strong attention to nature, specially rocks. Aneta Regal’s sources of inspiration include trees, rocks, fields and river-beds. She not only wants to capture the various forms, energies and rhythms of nature but also to suggest the emotional power they have on her. Even if elements and shapes observed in nature dictate her creative approach, Aneta Regel says: ‘creating objects which doesn’t exist in a way, neither living, nor manufactured, but which translate feelings and proper states to nature and to (my) her own existence.’
