Bio
Bente Skjøttgaard (b.1961) makes highly textured ceram- ic sculptures with an aura of equal parts toughness and her sense for an underlying poetic delicacy. She is constantly test- ing the performing abilities of the raw materials, the works re- lying on both her fresh, sketchy approach to modelling in the wet clay and the unpredictability of her rings with glazes at high temperatures. Out of her immediate control, the materials are left in the kiln to perform on the basis of her previous expe- riences and her in nite curiosity for new unexpected results. Bente Skjøttgaard keeps adding new highly personal chapters to the in nite story that culture and nature share, whilst con- tinuing her exploration of ceramic possibilities.
