"My pottery are emotions and senses eternalized into form."
Yonobi is thrilled to welcome a new artist from our home country Denmark - Kristine Vedel Adeltoft.
Kristine originally studied as a clothing designer, but an old farm in the countryside of Denmark with plenty of space made her resume her passion for clay. Ceramicist Bjarne Hansen taught her to throw, and he further inspired her with his unpretentious approach to the profession and the material. Suddenly it was pretty simple that this was what she should do for a living.
Today Kristine has a large and well-functioning studio at the farm, where she works full time. Her focus is on hand-thrown stoneware and the development of glazes. She primarily makes tableware and other functional items. Kristine has for example delivered plates and bowls for Restaurant Noma, Cph. and Restaurant Ö, Nysted.
Her work is about emotions and senses. She is inspired by the nature around her, and she believes that she can capture a tiny bit of that in the creating process, making it live on in her pieces to be sensed by the one holding it and using it.
All ceramics and glazes are developed and made by Kristine herself.
