Clara Jorisch is a self-taught designer and crafts(wo)man from Montreal, with a background in visual art and graphic design. Clara’s work proposes a sculptural approach to everyday objects and questions functional imperatives. All the pieces she makes streams from useless ideas, and integrates deliberate imperfections. They are admittedly irrational, and open to interpretation. In her practice, Clara explores various craft techniques and materials as a way to question the behaviors prescribed by mundane objects. Her practice seeks to create small disturbance in everyday settings and trigger new ways of interacting with our familiar surroundings. In 2019, Clara launched the first Broken mirror collection, a limited series of hand-cut mirrors designed to create subtle optical effects and play perception. In 2022, she introduced the POUFS, a collection of modular soft sculptures that welcome playful interactions.
