Contemporary Ceramic Model “Metamorphosis Purple 1658” by Bente Skjøttgaard



Bente Skjøttgaard Ceramic model “Metamorphosis Purple 1658” Manufactured by Bente Skjøttgaard Denmark, 2016 Stoneware and glaze Measurements 15 cm diameter x 25 cm height 5.9 in diameter x 9.84 in height Details Unique piece About Bente Skjøttgaard (b.1961) makes highly textured ceramic sculptures with an aura of equal parts toughness and her sense for an underlying poetic delicacy. She is constantly testing the performing abilities of the raw materials, the works relying on both her fresh, sketchy approach to modelling in the wet clay and the unpredictability of her firings with glazes at high temperatures. Out of her immediate control, the materials are left in the kiln to perform on the basis of her previous experiences and her infinite curiosity for new unexpected results. Bente Skjøttgaard keeps adding new highly personal chapters to the infinite story that culture and nature share, whilst continuing her exploration of ceramic possibilities.
