At her workshop in Copenhagen, all the products are produced by hand, using techniques such as slip-cast, hand throwing, and brush painting. Through experiments with materials and techniques, she develops forms, glazes, and decorations which are based on a simple and functional idiom. “When I teach, I love passing on the techniques I have learned over time. I find it very interesting to see what kind of results can spring out of an otherwise traditional technique when applying a creative and innovative approach. Also, I find it inspiring to follow the journey that my students go through when learning about ceramics, whether they are complete beginners or working at a more advanced level”.
Ida Odgaard is a trained a ceramist from the Danish Design Academy. In my ceramic work, I like to focus on shaping and working with form. I am specially interested in the intersection between aesthetics and function. In my craft, I try to create useful and beautiful things, that can elevate situations in the everyday life. I mostly throw pots, because I love throwing and because each pot gets a unique handprint through the craft.

Han Nguyen, before becoming a potter she used to mill about in the game industry as a game designer of educational games and an artist in Denmark. During a career break she discovered clay, which has since turned into a career change when she found herself on a path that led deeper into the world of ceramics. Since that muddy meeting, she spent an autumn at Bornholms højskole, an internship at WAUW design and then committing herself to 2½ years in Clay College at the heart of the potteries in Stoke-on-Trent to hone the craft of producing high-quality handmade ceramics. Her time in the UK has introduced her to a great variety of styles and techniques, in particular the energy and playfulness of slipware as well as the craft and effortlessness of the old country potters, which has informed and shaped her making process.
