In this context, Nina Hole, who created her own original language within the traditional structure, made a great and important contributions to the contemporary ceramic art. She has made a connection between nature and architecture in terms of inter disciplinary aspect with the help of her own artistic language towards ceramic art. Not only artistry but also technique and production mode, she was interested in both at the same time. This article focuses on the boundaries of ceramic art in terms of traditional and contemporary perspective and how Nina Hole is pushing these boundaries. As a conclusion, this paper will examine the contemporary concepts and debates of contemporary ceramic art in the light of Nina Hole's method of producing art works and approaching ceramic art. Nina Hole, who acted as a bridge between Europe and America, focused on the structuralist view of ceramic art and how it is shaped by the development of technology in today's world. With the light of it, the dynamics of contemporary ceramic art will be examined. In this context, as seen, interdisciplinary aspects of her art works are the inevitable result of the contemporary art production mode. The "power of production" concept of the "new" is related to revealing what is hidden in the technique. Nina Hole's approach to ceramics art will be examined through the contemporary art’s concerns.
