Bente Skjøttgaard is a wonderful ceramicist who lives and works in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. I could spend a looong time looking at her pieces. They are so beautiful.
“The basic elements in my work are the materials: clay and glaze. I enjoy engaging in expressive ceramic experiments that test the boundaries of material and form. I often take my point of departure in nature’s principles and regularities of form. This results in strange inscrutable sculptural growths and large wild and amorphous nature abstractions that may be both lush and melancholic with an expression of beauty in both growth and decay.” Read more here.
