Oktavia Schreiner

Oktavia Schreiner is a visual artist working in ceramic and wood to produce large-scale, painted sculptural objects. Using the abilities and strength of materials, the artist engages a mainly process based, improvised approach to making art. The images she paints and scratches onto and into the clay or wooden surface are made as part of a concern for the material form and relates to both the mental and physical perspectives we have to objects and space.
