Keramiker Inge Vincents
2200 København N
I work a bit at the edge of the functional, from thin to hysterically thin, in a fine, translucent porcelain clay. That said, everything is meant for use, and my pieces are always based on a well-known, everyday object such as a pot or a vase. The simple and light idiom has a strong Scandinavian reference, yet with a more organic twist. I use techniques such as slab-building or wheel-throwing with a particular focus on texture and on the clay’s inherit formgiving properties.
I have played with clay since I was four years old and have pieced my ceramic education together from numerous classes such as live model sculpture, summer art clay school, pottery at technical college, finishing with an apprenticeship at the studio of Danish ceramist Christian Bruun. In 2007, 2008 and 2009 I received honourable mentions from the biennales in Korea (CEBIKO) and Japan (Mino), and in 2007 I received the Applied Arts Award bronze medal. For the past 15 years I’ve been working full-time specialising in thinware porcelain. In 2009 I established my own studio and shop in Copenhagen open to the public six days a week. More info on www.
