Little Vase Shoppe
Alenka Paquet

My work as an artist reflects an intense relationship between myself and nature, namely trees. I am inspired by their structure, their strangely beautiful angles, and the twists and bends of their branches.

With my work I invite the viewer to acquire a new and fresh realization of the incredible resilience and toughness that trees must exert in order to survive on our planet.


I mold and sculpt clay in a way that reveals the unique aesthetic beauty of these resilient and robust organisms that tower around us. They are creatures that are fundamental to our existence. I work mostly with sculpting clays. Certain sculptures are glazed inside so that they can be used as vases.
