CHANTAL CHITTKA CERAMICS
Artist. Designer. Human.
Originally from Germany, I´m a ceramic artist based in Valencia, Spain for twenty years now. It is here, where I completed my artistic studies at Escuela d´Art i Superior de Ceràmic de Manises.
What I´ve been focusing on most is creating personalised porcelain and stoneware crockery for restaurants or personal use. I believe that inspiration can be found wherever one chooses to look.

I have a predilection for useful things and therefore mostly end up making functional design objects. I believe they can bring their users small moments of joy and comfort in every day life, simply by looking at them, touching them, knowing that somebody made them by hand with lots of dedication and love.
My final degree project defends the idea that porcelain tableware may also be portable, trying to
reinforce the awareness, that we need to STOP producing plastic waste - and one way to do so is by reducing the use of disposable
cups, plates and bottles.
I named this set She-va.
Here some of my works, created for a contest to design plates for the two-star Michelin restaurant, Ricard Camarena. My inspiration was taken from our surroundings: the seaside, small farming plots where lots of manual Labour prevails and the mountains.
