Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is an Australian potter and visual artist based in Kaurna Country, South Australia. She currently works in porcelain, making wheel thrown functional ware and exhibition-based objects that explore her cultural heritage, ceramic traditions, and craft skills.
Hannah has undertaken residencies in both Tasmania and Japan, finding great value in connecting with other practitioners and learning a variety of ceramic techniques. Her recent shift to porcelain with a focus on wheel thrown functional ware was supported by a mentorship opportunity with Susan Frost that helped her to solidify themes within her making, creating a clear path of inquiry for future work.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Ceramics) from the University of South Australia in 2017, Hannah went on to do a two-year Associate Training Program at JamFactory. After spending a further two years there as a tenant, Hannah is now working from her home studio and teaches wheel throwing at JamFactory's ceramics studio.
