Background and Inspiration
My background is an M.A. from Designskolen Kolding, where
I specialized in ceramic design and form. Since followed
many years of working with ceramics, giving most of my attention
to mouling, movement and pattern.
I value a high degree of aesthetics and harmony, which is
my signature on the ceramics as well as - not least - at
touch of humour.
Many years of working with ceramics have given me great
experience of outdoor environments.
It is exciting to explore the interaction between the ceramics
and the artistic effects of Nature itself, as the ceramics
can add an additional unexpected experience - at touch of
personality and atmosphere in the garden.
The ceramics can either emphasize or break a whole and
put life into the gernerally boring winter garden.
Materials and Techniques
The ceramics are made from stoneware clay and are baked
at 1240 degrees Celsius. The high baking temperature causes
the surface of the ceramics to close - and therefore they
will not be able to absorb water and frost break.
Hence the ceramics can be left outside all the year round
I mainly work with modelled subjects, but I also use potter´s
wheel-and casting techniques.
I have found new glazes for the ceramics by means of experiment
and supplement with already mixed glazes.
The measurements of the ceramics on the photographs shown
are between 30 and 50 cm.
