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 (earlier 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 her studio in very small amounts and can be purchased in her gallery along with her artworks.

When Gunhild Aaberg exhibits she is among others known for creating art installations and not be limited by working entirely with clay as a material.

Ceramic artworks

Except from small artworks it takes Gunhild Aaberg weeks or even months to finish a ceramic artwork.

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.
