Hannah Vorrath-Pajak is a potter and visual artist based in Kaurna Country, South Australia. She works in porcelain, making wheel thrown functional ware and exhibition-based objects that explore ceramic traditions, craft skills and her cultural heritage.
Her focus on porcelain and wheel thrown domestic objects 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. Hannah has undertaken residencies in Tasmania, Japan and has spent time working in remote central Australia, finding great value in connecting with other practitioners and environments.
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.
