Karissa Chase is a Townsville girl who fled the city after graduating from high school, moved to Brisbane to study ceramics and hasn't looked back. After deciding to be a potter at the young age of 16, Karissa pursued her dream to do so. After graduating art college in Australia, America gave her the opportunity for love and the chance to introduce her ceramic work. Working with either the wheel or a rolling pin, each piece is not only cute, but how fortunate Karissa is to do what she loves.

Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.
