Gunhild Aaberg is a renowned Danish contemporary artist and ceramicist based in Copenhagen. She runs her own ceramic gallery and studio in Lille Strandstræde 14 A (also known as Strandstræde Keramik) in Copenhagen.
In her studio she handcrafts and fires all of her ceramic artworks, which all are entirely unique.
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 artworks.
When Gunhild Aaberg exhibits she is known for creating art installations and not be limited by working entirely with clay as a material.
In the next weeks we will improve this website a little by little. It will soon be fitted with more information, photos and so on. If you like to see more photos – please visit Gunhild Aaberg’s Facebook or Instagram profiles (see links below).
Except from small artworks it takes Gunhild Aaberg weeks or even months to finish a ceramic artwork. She is focusing on her sculptures and art installations at the moment.
When Gunhild is creating a sculpture she often spends weeks on handbuilding it inch by inch. She will continue to work on the shape until she is satisfied. In the process the sculpture will most likely be reshaped many times. If she is not satisfied with the shape, she destroys it. If the sculpture is not put to sleep, Gunhild will then focus on the surface using different hammering and scraping tools. The sculpture will then get different layers of slips and a little glace. In the process the sculptures is fired at least twice in a reduces atmosphere. Sometimes months of work can be destroyed in a single fire that reaches 1300 degrees Celsius.
This section will soon be more informative. While you are waiting for more photos and information, you can have a look at Instagram.
