Working with the flaws

The chance involved in the ceramic process is very dear to me. I perceive cracks and flaws as divine interventions and welcome them to play a central role to the final ceramic output.

I am working with ‘my’ showroom in Silkeborg, Central Denmark and welcome visitors by previous appointment. At the moment I exhibit icons, sculptures, a few vases as well as a recently finished  series of 5 sculptural candleholders, Bifald, that pay homage to the late hymn writer and poet Simon Grotrian (1961-2019)*.

Made 4 pieces during the spring lockdown of Denmark that were finalised in august. I am exploring nordic (nordjysk) kintsugi. Both tha candleholders and the most recent pieces are carrying the same quote by Simon Grotrian, Digte, 2019:

 

et skridt frem kan føre til så meget
også Åndens kram af lutter luft

one step forth can lead to many things
including The Spirit’s hug made of all air
