Sabine Wecker dove back into clay at the University of Regina in 2018 after a twenty-year break. In 1998 she completed a formal five-year education in a ceramic art school in Germany (Keramikfachschule Landshut) with a Master-Craftsmanship-Diploma.
When asked why ceramics, Wecker says “It is the alchemy that gives me a never ending fascination.” Ceramics is the most complex material in the art world, in her opinion: The process of bringing together the elements of earth, fire, and water to “create.”
Wecker likes to work with the wheel. Thrown forms give an excellent starting point in her process. Always on the hunt for the perfect form — vessels are her favorite — as they define a space in a literal and metaphorical way.
