Sigve Knutson (b. 1991, Norway) is an experimental designer based in Oslo. His practice is motivated by a fascination for the intuitive and playful rather than the smoothened and planned. These sculptures, in particular, are made out of wood clay.
“The objects I make are all made by hand and therefore have a strong relationship to the body. Material properties like weight and strength guide me towards designs that happen freely in relation to my own abilities as an amateur craftsman. The way I shape materials draws from the first known man-made objects. I believe I am searching for a connection to humanity’s collective creative past, for an anachronistic sympathy to the person who, a millennia ago, discovered that sharp stones work well as a chopping tool.”
