Ceramicist
Simon Koefoed Keramik
Denmark
I was born and raised on the beautiful Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, in close contact with its versatile nature. After 10 years in exile, I returned to study at the Glass and Ceramics School on Bornholm, an internationally renowned craftsman training (today a part of the Danish Design education). After graduation, I established myself on a property in the small town of Rø, with my family, workshop and store. I have participated in exhibitions at various art associations both in Denmark and abroad. WORK The fascination for clay and its inherent characteristics is the focal point of my ceramic work. The last 10 years I have worked exclusively in porcelain. I have developed my own techniques for making ultrathin, translucent works with varying surface structures. The objects are handmade all through the process, from the liquid state of the clay, to its leather hard and dry stage, all the way to the finished, fired mode. Porcelain is the cleanest, whitest and the most finely grained of all clay types, and when fired at 1280 degrees it´s grains sinters so close together that it obtains great strength. Therefore, the works are not as fragile as they first seems. Thin porcelain allow light to shine through the walls of the items, it will bring a poetic extra dimension to the visual impression. The focal point and basic shape of my works is often the bowl, the simplest and most beautiful archetype to present structures, textures and patterns. I find that nature offers the most amazing patterns and structures, where beauty emerges from the tension between system and chaos. It is often nature´s principle of simplicity and controlled randomness, I searches for in my works.
'I have the desire to create fascinating and beautiful works with my hands, based on my own ideas and in close collaboration with the material'.
