Arkitektur, Etterklang and Struktur av minner
Arkitektur, Etterklang and Struktur av Minner in porcelain, stoneware and glaze are objects studying cyclic processes of change, such as growth, transformation and decay. The clay is combined with other natural materials, twigs, bark, sand and plants, which emit colour or leave structural traces on the objects. By modelling, glazing and burning the clay several times, the process also becomes part of the pieces’ overall investigation.
