Estonian ceramic and glass artist/designer.

Born in 1981, Kuressaare Estonia



My name is Kristel Kärdi, creator and designer of KärdikDisain. I graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts. My art and design is born in my home studio along the coast of Western Estonia, therefore the presence of the sea can often be felt in my works

I draw inspiration from the power and beautiful fragility of nature. I have learned to be respectful and humble towards nature as it is always bigger and more powerful than us. Nature and ceramics are actually very similar. They both tell you what to do and where the limits are - you just have to listen, because nature has the last word.

I always admire CLAY, this living natural material, in which there are so many possibilities to create something completely new.







The Baltic Vibe. Elements 2022


“Ice stone”, 2021, glass and stoneware
This is an art object where I deal with the relationship between partners. How relationships work together and what roles someone plays. Are we switching roles?



The set “Nilas” , 2021, slip cast porcelain (2 cups and jug)
Nilas is the first bearing ice crust that forms on the nordic sea ice. So it is like in life, where commitment and time are the prerequisites for the permanent emergence of something.
