A two week residence @ NNKS Kunstnerhuset in Svolvær, Lofoten, Norway.
The mountains in Lofoton has fascinated me for a long time and finally I got to experience them. For two weeks I was watching and walking in, on and around the formations of the mountains. I made clay sketches of these formations. For some particular shapes of the mountains I felt a special interest. My concern was not an intellectual understanding of this interest, rather I tried to connect this immediately interest with my hands forming the clay. In this way I wanted to explore the feeling of relation between me and certain formation of the mountains. Feelings of relations fixed into pure form. This study will become useful in my work with my organic shaped structures and relations between them, people and places. Back in my studio I will explore these ceramic sketches in relation to my structural pattern making.
