Meet the Maker: Ola Wartak-Tolak
Ola’s passion for ceramics is inspired by the beauty of the Irish coastline, where she has lived for over 18 years. Nature and the sea are her muses, and she infuses its tranquillity and uniqueness into each piece. Through her brand, Stories by Ola, she invites you to explore this artistry and passion, letting her ceramics become a part of your own story, adding a touch of magic to your everyday moments.
What’s a typical day in the studio like for you?
It always starts with coffee! During this time I’m planning my day.
What do you like most about your work?
I love that my day-to-day work varies so much. When I need a change, I can switch between artist and production ceramicist. Or I can do photography and taxes.
What advice would you give someone who is considering this craft career?
Go for it and never, ever stop learning and experimenting.
