About The Artist
Christina Osheim • Brentwood, MD
Ceramics • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
Osheim's work explores the tension between polarities, specifically trauma and delight, as they relate to the senses. Her exploration of interstitial space using line, color and shape invites viewers to enter into her world and find their own meaning within. A severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor Osheim has has explored mortality and the uncertainties of anxiety and insomnia that are two of the long term side effects of TBI. Art is a form of communication and some experiences are impossible to put words for. Osheim�s explorations are a way to share her experiences with the world - the good, the bad, the catch-22.

Tell us how your work is made.
Slip casting and color blocking are the techniques used to make the work. MOBIUS KERAMIKK makes porcelain slip, or liquid clay, in house. The slip is poured into plaster molds of the objects to be sold. This process makes identical forms, or canvases. Osheim then uses tape to color block each form. Each piece is individual as it is impossible to get color blocking identical when doing hand work, allowing the work to sit as a sculptural and functional object in the home.
