Before becoming a potter I used to mill about in the game industry as a game designer of educational games and an artist in Denmark. During a career break I discovered clay, which has since turned into a career change when I found myself on a path that led deeper into the world of ceramics. Since that muddy meeting, I’ve spent an autumn at Bornholms højskole, an internship at WAUW design and then committing myself to 2½ years in Clay College at the heart of the potteries in Stoke-on-Trent to hone the craft of producing high-quality handmade ceramics.
My time in the UK has introduced me to a great variety of styles and techniques, in particular the energy and playfulness of slipware as well as the craft and effortlessness of the old country potters, which has informed and shaped my making process.
I’m based in Copenhagen where I teach at Yonobi studio and continue to make slipware pots for everyday use.
