Danica Wichtermann is a ceramic artist and teacher based in the hills of Kalamunda, Perth. Her work reflects a passion for the native flowers and birds of Australia, as well as threatened species within Western Australia. Her porcelain clay vessels are wheel thrown before illustrations and stylised designs are hand-carved into the surface.
Danica’s works are known for capturing the essence of the unique natural biodiversity in Western Australia often using impressions from nature to create textures and patterns as part of her designs. The finished, glazed and fired pieces are works of art created to be functional, durable and safe for use.
Danica holds a Diploma of Education and a BA in Fine Arts from Curtin University. She is a high school teacher and has been operating her own studio, Rediscover Ceramics, since 2006 where she conducts workshops, private tuition and mater classes.
Danica has won awards for her work and participates in numerous exhibitions, including regular group shows. Her works are also part of Government and public collections across Australia and abroad.
