Pot of the Month September 2009

Ceramic Curator's Choice

Organic Blue Bowl


Aase Haugaard is a Danish potter of some eminence. Her work is recognisably Scandinavian – classical yet organic shapes – ceramic sculptures as Eric Meistrup the Art Critic described them. This pot is particularly impressive. Its shape suggests the capacity to grow – to change even as we stand and admire.

This is a vessel that truly needs its own space. It has real presence and has within it the roots of the ancient potter and the sensibilities of the contemporary artist.
