The playfulness of slipware and the craft and effortlessness of traditional country pottery has informed my language within ceramics. At the same time I also have a desire to explore domestic ware as a canvas and am constantly experimenting with decoration techniques to produce everyday items that can present themselves not only as functional items but as decorative in their own right.
I have a background in the game industry where I used to work as a game designer. During a career break I discovered clay and since then the temporary break became a permanent change. I graduated from Clay College in Stoke-on-Trent in 2021, where the English pottery traditions have made a clear impression on my practice. I have since then returned to Denmark where I have a workshop in Odense, where I aim to make contemporary slipware with a strong foundation in traditional craftsmanship.
Apart from my own work I'm also studio manager and teaching at Yonobi in Odense.
