Description

BEHOLD:BECOME is a limited edition of sculptures in porcelain.

NO I is one of three additional pieces made especially for a solo show in 2020 as signature pieces for the show. At stake here is the interaction between the intended shape and the organic growth as two principles of design. On small pedestals organic shapes are frozen in poses. The organic shapes are made from plant material collected in nature and preserved in porcelain. The fragile natural imprints break into smaller pieces in the first fire and are reused in loosely stacked structures on top of the base. In the second fire the glazes develop and takes shape and the base and top are unified in a tableau – a snapshot of a movement.

The white perfection of the porcelain is contrasted by the rich and complex textures of the glazes revealing the beauty in both.

About the designer


Signe Fensholt

Signe Fensholt is a Copenhagen based ceramic artist. In her work she leaves part of the creative process to the magic of the ceramic materials and the natural forces in the ceramic kiln. Like a choreographer she sets the stage, give her instructions and let go. The transformation of soil and dust into sparkling surfaces and crisp shapes is still visible as traces of creation. The performative aspect of ceramic materials is a focal point in the way she works as well as in the final results. She works in the interface between design and art keeping a reference to a shape or a function that we easily recognize but with another agenda than finding a solution for a practical need. She graduated 2018 from The Royal Danish Academy of Design. Since her graduation she has been selected for major exhibitions and has received several grants for her artistic practice.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
