Porcelain - Celadon glaze

In 2018 I was invited to attend an art residency at the Ceramic Institute of Jingdezhen. In that residency I chose to work on projects related to my heritage. My research took me on a journey back in time, to the times of my forefathers the Scandinavian Vikings. It led me to the woodcuts dated from the year 750 - 1200 that I used as a theme for my porcelain work. Over the 3 months spent at the residency I truly connected to my heritage through the porcelain and the craftsman of Jingdezhen, China.​

This is the first project I made in Porcelain in the city Jingdezhen. Jingdezhen in the Jinxi province in China is a city where they made the porcelain for the emperor for hundreds of years.
