ABOUT KENZA

Kenza is a ceramic artist based in Norwich, England, creating unique ceramic artworks in which she experiments and pushes the limits of pottery. Seeing her work as a durational piece, she cites that the process is just as important as the outcome.

She creates pieces that explore the idea of destruction in art to find the beauty through violent events, referring to the technique as 'destructive pottery'. This method draws upon destructivist artists and ideologies but translates them into ceramics. By bringing elements of violence to pottery she questions the stereotype that pottery is seen as a peaceful artform.
She is constantly experimenting and playing with clay, and is passionate about creating pieces that are both aesthetically pleasing and thought-provoking. In their very nature of being created through unpredictable violent impacts, each mark is random leaving unique pieces of art.
