Slow Works #1by Louise Egedal
Danish Ceramist Louise Egedal has created a series of artworks with beautiful photographs of three works. She finds inspiration in the raw Scandinavian nature that surrounds her home on the island of Funen and the Japanese Wabi-sabi aesthetic with its penchant for the imperfect. The unique pieces shown are all hand thrown and carved in her studio.
About the artist
Louise started her training more than twenty years ago, attending art schools in Denmark, Turkey and England. Since 2008 she has run her own studio, making one-of-a-kind pieces for collectors around the globe. The main body of her work is wheel-thrown pieces, some intuitively chiselled and carved, but also using the Japanese Hakeme-technique for brushwork.
She's inspired by the Japanese Wabi-sabi aesthetic with its penchant for the imperfect, while the Scandinavian design tradition with its minimalism is the cornerstone of her work. The muted tones of her pieces have a reminisce of the natural surroundings of Denmark. Combining the two cultures in the aesthetic field has resulted in what she likes to refer to as "Nordic Wabi-sabi."
