This week we were excited to read Jillian Billard’s article “5 Essential Tips for Collecting Ceramics” published in Artsy. In line with other theorical explanations on the benefits of surrounding oneself with art and collectibles, Billard takes on figurative clay or porcelain creations: “[...] another factor in the growing interest in ceramics is, quite simply, that they’re fun. In a time when daily life is largely conducted online, the tactility of ceramics is a refreshing change of pace that, as Spahn explained, can ‘bring a lot of enjoyment to your life and to your collection.”

Billard further goes:

The aesthetic, conceptual, physical, and textural possibilities of ceramics are virtually endless, and the diverse applications of the medium are continually evolving.

This is definitely true. The dimensional gap between painting and sculpture opens up 

At Beamalevich we too believe in the importance of interacting with art during these difficult times as a means of enjoyment and creative expression, and to have a most deserved relaxing break. Touching, feeling, playing with tangible and natural materials can help release enormous built up pressure and stress and help you be and feel more calmed and better in everything you do.

Our ceramics might contribute to these possibilities and offer an outlet for creative expression during a time when many of us are looking for an inspirational presence around us, a presence that is not pushy but gentle, smooth and sympathetic. 

Standing 30 cm tall from base to top of the head, our collection of handmade and hand painted statues are an harmonious piece of art that can give the right touch to your place.
