ABOUT

The making of Scandinavian quality  

Karin studied ceramics at the Design School in Kolding, Denmark, and refined her skills at the Royal College of Art in London. She now lives and works in Copenhagen since 2000.

In Karin’s work the quality of the material shines through in her hand-thrown pots. Whether a bowl or a cylinder, the visual pleasure in handling a fine thrown ceramic is central to her work. The malleable nature of stoneware clay and the glazes that  envelop it will give the user an intimate relationship with the object that leaves a lasting impression. Karin’s ceramics embody the unique relationship between the ceramic body and its surface.

From the studio in Absalonsgade

Developed exclusively in limited batch runs, the forms relate to each other across the diverse  shapes and colours.  The use  of  the soft colour notes on archetypal forms create an individual expression that feels contemporary and classic. Through her experience of stoneware materials and long-standing research into glazing, Karin works on ceramics that are both beautiful and practical. The everyday object for the kitchen and home interior is developed with care and attention to detail at each stage of the creative process, and expressed in the finishing touches of the surface glaze.
