Klara Calitri

My art in ceramics, pastels, monotypes and oils has been shaped by a variety of influences, including my childhood in Vienna, Austria, the work of the Wiener Werkstatte and Impressionism. My current work reflects the light and mood of our beautiful Vermont landscapes, orchards and gardens filtered through my unique cultural background.

My tiles and mural designs have been installed in many architectural contexts including entryways, kitchens, fireplace surrounds and countertops. I also produce functional ceramics, including platters, bowls and plates that are both decorative and highly practical.

I was born in Vienna, Austria and emigrated to the United States in 1939.  I hold a B.A. from the University of Vermont, an M.A. in Comparative Literature from Cornell University; and pursued doctoral studies at Columbia University.
