The collection of phosphate porcelain lamps is inspired by the northern lights.
The simple shape is the basis for playing with ceramic material, the successive layers of porcelain allow to reveal the overlaps when it lights up.
The translucent lamp is created for minimalist contemporary interiors. When unlit the surface of the lamp has a matte, satin look and feel, while lit,
the lamp emanates the warmth of the material, the colors intensify and the game of the porcelain layers becomes visible.
Phosphate porcelain is a precious translucent ceramic material that transforms a room into a cozy space.
Colecţia de lămpi din porţelan fosfatic este inspirată de luminile nordului, oferă o surpriză privitorului atunci când se aprinde. Forma simplă este o bază pentru jocul cu materialul ceramic.
Este o lampă diafană creată pentru interioare moderne, minimaliste. Lampa neluminată are un aspect mat, satinat în timp ce luminată, lampa emană căldura materialului, culorile se intensifică şi jocul foitelor de porţelan devine vizibil.
Porţelanul fosfatic este un material ceramic translucid, preţios, ce transformă o încăpere într-o cameră primitoare.
Sunt încântată de fiecare dată când un client îmi sugerează o idee pornind de la o lucrare de-a mea. Cu un an în urmă o arhitectă a intrat din întâmplare în atelierul meu, căuta ceva decorativ pentru peretele scării unei vile. I-am aratat o lucrare de mici dimensiuni din prima mea expoziţie personală. I-a placut şi asa a început un nou proiect, ce a născut un altul.
Lucrările parietale pe care le-am realizat sunt din plăcuţe de porţelan dar montate în aşa fel încât să fie fluide, imperfecte şi în acelaşi timp să se încadreze într-un interior al cărui design a fost bine gândit. Piesa mea era cea care completa interiorul casei şi asta mi-a dat aripi.
Am lucrat destul de mult la acest “covor” decorativ din portelan in nuante de lila, galben pe fond alb, cu motive geometrice incrustate, de aprox 1,90/ 90cm. L-am numit “Brânduşe în zăpadă”.
Urmatorul proiect a plecat de la “Brânduşe în zăpadă”, o clientă a venit la atelier în timp ce lucram la această piesă şi s-a gândit la un cadou pentru un cuplu ce se muta în casă noua, un cadou mai personalizat.
Aşa s-a născut un alt obiect decorativ parietal format din 4 panouri cu poze distincte, imprimate printr-o tehnică de transfer pe porţelan ce conferă plasticitate imaginii. Am realizat o simulare cu acest panou pentru a imagina cum va fi expus în noua casă.
Le mulţumesc celor ce îmi oferă inspiraţie şi şansa de a crea piese de design interior.
The collection of “telescopic” mugs, cups and saucers was made during an art residency in Denmark.
An older idea, inspired by the telescopic plastic cup from the childhood school trips.
The inspiration from the Nordic design is found in the geometric shapes of these objects. The colors are based on experiments based on the range of samples and colors from the Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center.
The collection includes a large cup of tea, a coffee cup and a saucer. The saucer replicates the top of the tea cup.
In 3 words: play, color, telescope!
The residency @Guldagergaard has ended with a group exhibition at Æblehus/Applehouse gallery, here in Skaelskor. It was rewarding to see our works in a catalogue and exhibited all together. The show had this young, cool, colorful and playful vibe!
It was interesting the experience of curating together as a group, our own exhibition. Though some people were very active, maybe too active regarding other people’s works and some very laid back, in the end we got to a point of harmony. We helped each other and listen or asked for opinion but finally it was also good to have also some fair-minded advice.
During the show, it was nice talking to people about my works, answer their questions and see their reactions. They embraced the idea and it was nice to observe that they had thoughts on the future provoked by my pieces.
I liked a lot the diverse approaches of my colleagues, to see the road to get to the final pieces and the stages in between, the passion and happiness of creation all together in the same studio.
The Guldagergaard premises are within a park that used to be an apple farm. That’s why the Art Gallery is named “the Apple house”.
The studio is just across the house. It’s very well equipped and a nice place to work, though open space you can still have your privacy.
I love it’s cupboards with many buckets with all kind of ingredients from the glazing room and I’m planning to make some coloured glaze from scratch.
Tomorrow we are going to work in the kiln yard, in shifts, because we’re gonna have a wood firing. First one for me. I only have a couple of pieces ready for this but I’m looking forward to see how it goes.
Each new road has a sign. How did I find this road? Half a year ago I applied for this program, called Project Network, in Denmark, in one of the few International Research Centres in the world. Denmark + ceramics + research = love, so here I am, the chance took me here! Yet, I hardly moved myself from cosy home just after the New Year’s Eve, but it’s worthy, I’m sure.
The house is cosy, ceramicists are usually nice people, so all premises are good. First night I am lucky, they invite me to dinner, but next week it’s my turn to cook, too. There is a joke that this is a ceramic & cooking program.
In the morning we visited the gallery where we will put on our exhibition in a few weeks from now. Even if I feel like on holidays, I am aware I must produce pieces worthy to be displayed in this gallery. That’s challenging. I’ve seen the catalogues of the previous shows and all works were great!
The studio is great, it has a lot of facilities, I picked a place with a view to a green loan which I hope will calm me and leave space for inspiration!
