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.
