Barbro Åberg

White Organic Vessel

Denmark 2014

ABE 04


Medium: Glazed ceramic, made from clay with volcanic grit

Dimensions: 6.75 in high x 10 in wide x 4.5 in deep

Åberg's works, made largely in black and white, 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 14.
