Finishing my latest employment as an achitect,
I signed up for Bornholms Folk High School for the
2007-2008 vinterterm, seeking a creative interlude.
Beyond the many general impressions, characteristic to
this type of school, I had the great opportunity to test my
architectural background on the many different techniques of ceramics.
This stay however made a large impression on me, much more
than I immediately had expected.
Being an architect in times of financial crisis is very difficult
and at the same time my interest in ceramics is growing.
I therefore decided to continue my studies and
signed up for the 2 following vinterterms on Bornholm.
Just finishing my last stay in spring 2010.
If somehow the momentary decline of the danish building
industry should increase, I could imagine a future being a ceramic artist.
The just completed Vinterterm I have tried to learn more about
precise throwing techniques, woodfiring and experimenting with ashglazes.
At the same time I have tried to bring more design into ceramics
as well as sculpturing more freely.
Subjects I untill now have suppressed deliberately
in order to focus more on the learning proces.
