Artsy Editor Casey Lesser identifies Aneta Regel as one of the most promising ceramists of our time, in this article published earlier this year. She writes:
"Regel’s raw, anthropomorphic sculptures are inspired by human figures and nature—like the rocky landscape of northern Poland where she grew up—though they’re also autobiographical and fantastical. She seeks to represent states of metamorphosis and conflict, and the passage of time in her works, often by firing them several times and incorporating objects other than clay, like volcanic rocks and feldspars.
“Interaction between those materials is essential in forming shapes,” Regel says. “Rocks are pushed to their bursting point and lava state, and objects are often capturing the moment of passage from one state to another.” Her vibrant sculptures recently featured in the 2016 European Triennial for Ceramics and Glass, and will be on view at Design Miami/ Basel this June, and the focus of a solo show in New York at Jason Jacques."
