Description/

The basic elements in Bente Skjøttgaard’s work are the materials: clay and glaze. With nature’s principles and regularities as her point of departure, her works result in strange inscrutable sculptural growths and large, wild and amorphous nature abstractions that may be both lush and melancholic with an expression of beauty in both growth and decay. Skjøttgaard enjoys engaging in expressive ceramic experiments that test the boundaries of material and form, and “Cloud#1795” is a one-of-a-kind work perfectly showcasing this.
