merete RASMUSSEN: my work is hand built in coiling technique. stoneware is my chosen material for its qualities – i like to challenge the material and my own skills by building complicated shapes; fragile in the building, drying and firing process which upon firing attain the strength to be handled and positioned without support.
i work with abstract sculptural form. i am interested in the idea of one continuous surface, with one connected edge or line running through the whole form. clear, clean shapes; soft smooth curves in contrast to sharp edges; concave and convex surfaces; the discovery and strength of an inner/negative space – these are all form expressions that appeal to me and results in my continuous exploration and expression in many different variations.
