Karo's Profile

About

karoArt was born spontaneously.
Karolina Grudniewska, who invents and makes pieces, discovered ceramics almost by accident. It all began one Christmas when she found two bags of clay under the Xmas Tree... and once she started playing with it she could not stop...

The following year Karo arrived in Ireland and that's when the creative side took over again. She joined a team of designer florists and soon after she felt an urge for more challenge again and following her passion for the visual side of life she wanted to explore colour form and texture in practice. Karo went back to college and studied Interior Architecture. In 2009 she was awarded a BA in Interior
Architecture and established GIBKA i.e. green interiors by karo -– freelance interior design services focusing on eco-friendly design solutions.

karoArt ceramics started around the same time.

Karo designs sculptural, decorative tiles, evoking simple, repetitive patterns, mainly inspired by organic life. She also makes more
functional items such as unique sewing buttons and jewellery pieces characterised by natural, organic look.

All pieces are made by hand from start to finish and no molds are used in the process.

The packaging, cards and tags used by Karo are either made of recycled materials or are made of things reused, re-purposed, rescued to serve this function.

karoArt ceramics can be described as SIMPLE, BOLD and QUIRKY.

Commission work and custom orders are always very welcome.
