As a designer-maker, Beste Ogan Korucu strives to create ‘textures to touch’ – intimate functional ceramic objects that make you want to hold them; timeless designs that are a pleasure to use everyday. They celebrate ‘the beauty of the imperfect’, reflecting colours, textures and forms derived from nature.
Beste was born in Izmir, Turkey, and studied for a Business degree in Istanbul. After some life-changing events, she emigrated to Sydney where she studied Ceramics and a Masters in Design at the College of Fine Arts, UNSW.
She moved to Perth in 2014 and was a Resident Artist at The Clay House alongside Fleur Schell and Danica Wichtermann for 2 years. She set up her own studio in 2016 and continues her ceramic practice in South Fremantle.
