Porcelain - Fragments

A_16046.jpg

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.

The project Fragment is one outcome from that residency. It is a collection of broken pieces from porcelain columns, with carvings from different periods of Viking art in Scandinavian. They symbolize the past and my connection to my heritage.
