Sequence

Sequence was inspired by traditional pottery and the potter’s craft. In wheel-throwing the cone shape is a basic element, and in traditional pottery the edge often slopes inward slightly. This aspect is highlighted in the bowls, which can be stacked to form a cone, serving as a formal paraphrase of the potter’s craft and a sculptural element on the kitchen table. The bowls are cast in stoneware casting slip and fired. After this initial firing, the bowls are glazed with two different glazes: a shiny glaze in the interior of the bowl and a matt exterior glaze. The bowls then go back into the kiln, at 1260 degrees Celsius. Finally, the base of the bowls is polished with wet grinding paper.

Kristina Vildersbøll

b. 1978, Danish ceramist

Kristina Vildersbøll graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design, Department of Ceramics in 2011. After her graduation she was selected to exhibit as an Upcoming Designer in the New Note section at the Formland Fair in Herning in 2011. In 2013, she exhibited as part of Talent Street at DesignTrade in Bella Center, Copenhagen.

Kristina Vildersbøll works in casting slip, mainly stoneware. Her creative process begins with drawings, often based on a form detail from an earlier sketch, a curve or a line from an old pottery product or the functional purpose that she sets out address. The sketches are then translated into clay or plaster samples, and the form is perfected. Once the product has found its form, she makes reproduction moulds for casting and begins to develop the right glazing type and colour.

Conceptually, her work often involves reinterpretations of elements from earlier product traditions. That is also the case with Sequence, which is presented here. Here, the potter’s work at the wheel inspired her to develop the sculptural stacking system that is the basic concept for the bowl series. Currently, her work is framed by three main concerns, as she strives to make products that are functional, have a simple, clean idiom and achieve a sculptural expression when they are stacked. With this sculptural quality, the product not only provides a beautiful storage solution but also serves as an artistic still life on the kitchen table or in a glass-fronted cupboard.
