Maryia Virshych

Placeholder
Maryia Virshych

Born: 1989

Hometown: Minsk, Belarus

Based in: Barcelona

 

A multidisciplinary artist, designer, architect, observer, maker, collector. Based in Barcelona.
I have a background in architecture and product design. Currently I work primarily in clay, as
I found in it serenity and slowness, that I've long searched for.

I try to escape the rush for eternal newness and pursue calm timelessness.
In 2020 I felt ready to launch virmary - a brand of handmade objects and jewelry.

It is a reflection of my own values and aspirations. Sustainability is guiding my every choice, from the source materials and processes to packaging. My main materials are bisque porcelain and gold plated sterling silver. Avoiding glazing when possible allows for recyclability and reduces the amount of kiln firings. Each item is thoughtfully crafted by hand in very small series, making every piece unique.

I like to think of these objects as precious gifts, acts of care for a dear friend, loved one or yourself, rituals companions to cherish and pass over. Accumulating value along their way.

About Maryia Virshych


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I am constantly motivated by natural processes and organic forms, this includes the way a leaf falls from the tree, a pattern a cloth makes when folding, a glass pebble washed from the sea, etc. Mindful observation is a never-drying source of inspiration. I also look for new shapes by paying close attention to everyday gestures and movements.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

An idea can come to my mind at any place. I first play with it a little in my imagination. Then I write it down ad leave for some time. Later (it can take days or it can take months) I come back to it; if it's worthy it's usually already evolved into something bigger. This is when I start building it in clay: working on the details, thinking of the processes, trying new methods and tools. The refining goes on until I'm in love with the work. We part ways, and the journey begins again.

Refined, Intuitive, Responsible
