Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is an Australian potter and visual artist based in Kaurna Country, South Australia. She currently works in porcelain, making heirloom wheel thrown functional ware and precious objects as she explores her cultural heritage, ceramic tradition, and craftsmanship within her work.
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 and 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.
