Gunhild Aaberg is a renowned Danish contemporary ceramic artist based in Copenhagen. Together with her son and agent - Sigge Aaberg Kærn - she runs her own ceramic gallery and studio in Lille Strandstræde 14 (also known as Strandstræde Keramik).
In her studio she handcrafts and fire all her ceramic art pieces, which all are entirely unique - each artwork takes many days and often weeks to create.
In her early years of her career she also designed some ceramic design – some of this design is now made in Copenhagen in very small amounts and can be purchased in her gallery along with her art works.
When Gunhild Aaberg exhibits she is known for creating art installations and not be limited by working entirely with clay as a material. But clay has always been her preferred material.
