Natalie Rosin is an architect and ceramic artist from Sydney, Australia. She has formally trained in architecture and sculpture within Australia and USA. Natalie’s ceramic practice involves the intersection of these disciplines through architectural ceramic sculpture.
“Maquette” is an installation guided by the concept of sketching with clay, thinking with the hand and using ceramics as a tool for design and architectural thought. During her residency at the Centre for Creative Activities, Natalie explored and studied the local architecture in Ustka and neighbouring Słupsk. The exhibition is a collection of sculptural ceramic maquettes influenced by these built forms. This exploration involves a search for new architectural understanding, attempting to reveal invisible architectural forms and uncover unrecognised spatial concepts.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Natalie has been awarded a Development Grant for the duration of this artist in residency program at the Bałtycka Galeria Sztuki Współczesnej.
