One of the joys of Guldagergaard is being surrounded by a staggering amount of studio pottery and ceramic art. Setting the table for dinner is a pleasure – sifting through an endless variety of beautiful handmade tableware. From my bedroom window I look out over the gardens to Paul Scott’s wonderful tile installation set perfectly within the landscape. On a more modest scale I stumble across hidden pieces as I go about my work; salt glazed tiles set in amongst the stones of the path or a tiny ceramic tableau tucked into a niche, out of immediate eyeline. One full week into my residency and I am still discovering new pieces and with them, fresh inspiration.
In the studio, work continues on my large mould. After adding and turning away what seems like acres of plaster, I have reached a profile I’m happy with and the model is finished. On Monday I will pour the plaster mould and by the end of the week I hope to begin making these new, statement vessel pieces.
