My solo exhibition 'FRESH lines' marks the culmination of my four week residency and highlights ten of the vessel forms I have made since I arrived here. It includes, to my great relief, a successful hybrid vessel nearly a metre tall. It is a very striking piece and I hope to produce similar forms as my commission for the British Ceramics Biennial in 2017.
Arranging this whole display has been a wonderful experience. Using bricks that have been handmade and smoke-fired here at the centre to literally support elements of my work seems particularly fitting. Putting together the exhibition also provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on my time at Guldagergaard. As I work out final placements and admire my artist’s statement written (but not by me) in fluent Danish, I think back on how much I’ve learned and developed in only four weeks.
I’m surrounded by all my new Guldagergaard friends as we celebrate the opening of 'FRESH Lines', it feels the perfect way to underline and conclude what has been a truly memorable experience.
