Yasemin Vardarlılar was born in 1981 in Istanbul.
She graduated in 2005 from Bryant University's Faculty of Arts in Communications.
She grew up in an art collector family with continuous visits to museums and
exhibitions and surrounded by paintings. Art has been something she has always
felt drawn to. Vardarlilar, who has been designing private and corporate events for
many years, took the decision to transform her passion for enhancing spaces one
step further and she started creating ceramic vases and objects. In 2016, she
established her own ceramic studio after taking lessons in the studios of leading
names. She started to produce her first works by experiencing different types of
clays and glazing techniques.
The artist who uses different materials such as natural stones, mosaics, ceramic
pieces and glass in addition to clay in her works, extends the limits of ceramic’
basic structure and aims to catch a fresh and contemporary look. In her latest
series called “Underwater Jewels”, she was inspired by the life under the sea and
the underwater creatures. The works in this series are also fictionalized as pieces
rescued from the submerged utopian continent Atlantis. Each artifact carries traces
of the civilization on the continent of Atlantis. These traces and symbols continue to
preserve their mysteries, just as the mystery of Atlantis continues.
She continues to be inspired by nature’s organic forms and its different textures.
