The Lib Atelier
Lib is a Luxembourg-Kosovar educator and self-taught ceramic artist based in Esch-sur-Alzette.
Born in 1989, he spent his childhood in Mitrovicë, Kosovo. From an early age he was surrounded and fascinated by the artisans and artists in his family who worked mainly with wood, copper bronze and clay.
It wasn’t until 2017 that he found back to his family’s artisanal roots when he started experimenting with clay and ceramics. He has since developed his craft and continues to be fascinated to discover and learn new techniques, colours and shapes every day.
He deeply believes in the therapeutic power of directly working clay with one’s hands, connecting haptics and mind, to create something by material exploration. He is drawing parallels to the healing process in psychologic social education. He pulls in references from his rich cultural background and is particulalry interested in discovering materials and techniques without limiting himself to definitions of art and design.
