About the artist

Diana Butucariu, from Bucharest currently living in Stockholm, artist in general, ceramicist, and glass artist in particular.
In my artistic practice, I work with sculptural objects where different techniques from the craft fields are brought together. A mixture of textures, materials, and techniques activates the senses and accentuates the fine line between a present act and a forgotten movement. The dramatic character of my art-works draws the viewer into a dialogue about social differences and identities, cultural collapses, and traditional remains.
