Louise Egedal

A contour, a curve - the lie of the land

Louise works with wheel thrown stoneware.  Her training started more than twenty years ago and now she is an established Danish artist with her own studio on the island of Funen.  Inspiration comes in many forms.  With the ceramic field Louise is highly influenced by the traditional Japanese "Wabi-sabi" aesthetics which, in short, means the beauty of imperfection.

In her works Louise strives to achieve a rustic and vivid expression. She is also influenced by her education in the Danish crafts tradition which means strict lines and minimalism.  Combining the two cultures in the aesthetic field has resulted in a rustic yet strict expression.  By leaving marks from the process of creating, Louise likes to emphasize the fact that it is made by human hands and that all her works are one-offs.
