Among Lithuanian contemporary ceramists there are very few so well-known names as that of Nora Blaževièiûtë. She is one of those who formed the face of present–day ceramics and elevated its prestige participating in the most important exhibitions and symposia of applied arts in Lithuania and abroad. Nora‘s original spontaneous style and her witty perception of life (a rare quality in the medium of decorative art!) captures attention of spectators and critics alike.
The artist began her creative career at the time when Lithuania wittnessed the emergence of conceptual ceramics, paralell to international movements of that time. She not only actively joined the movement but also became one of its leaders, enriching Lithuanian ceramics with original images and expressive, spontaneous forms. Nora‘s ceramics serve all purposes – it preserves the features of the objects used and at the same time manifests itself as free, unrestricted art. The artist seems to assert that all the works created by human hand can find their application, and she finds a home for her ceramic sculptures in an exhibition hall, a shop window, a private or public interior.
