Barbro Åberg

Rusty Spiral Vase

Denmark 2007

ABE 08


Medium: Glazed ceramic, made from clay with volcanic grit

Dimensions: 9.5 in diameter  x 13 in high

Åberg's works often play on the traditional Danish form of the vessel, morphing it into something purely sculptural, even playfully non-utilitarian. Rough surfaces inspired by geology are set in contrast to a refined elegance—new shapes inspired by fossils, old bones, or coral, forms full of light, negative space, and a tensile strength, made possible by the perlite and paper in her clay.

Signed and dated: BA 07.
