LO and BEHOLD is a series of seven unique ceramic tableaus in porcelain.
A tableau is a snapshot that holds the entire narrative. The ceramic tableau tells the story of how it became. In that way, it is a stage for a performance that has taken place in the kiln. The result balances between careful calculation and a loss of control. The dynamic shaping is stopped when the heat is switched off, leaving an imprint of the processes that we are intimately defined by – growth, decay, gravity, attraction, and adaption.
LO and BEHOLD are mind images of the horror of losing control, but also the relief that comes with losing grip and letting go.

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.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
