Mirjam Kustov

I take it as my mission to prove that ceramics is not just functional medium, a cup or a vase, but for me, above all, a medium for a sculptural expression. The subject matter of my works is sensitive and as a reflection of my inner world, rather than a mainstream "everyone's teacup". It´s the contrasts I´m interested in: light-shadow, finished-rough, contrast between artist´s vulnerability and courage to express it. I also like to combine different materials with ceramics. I consider it a great honor to have the ARS Art Factory and the Estonian Artists' Union chosen my work "EXIT" as a permanent exterior sculpture for the ARS building in 2020.
