Yonobi meets Louise Egedal

Louise Egedal is a Danish artist that creates unique works that conveys harmony, balance and authenticity. Louise makes art for people who want peace and harmony in their environment - with a raw edge! Her unique works contribute to a peaceful atmosphere in homes and workplaces - to places that stand out from the crowd.

Egedal Studio was founded in 2008 by Louise Egedal. She works from her studio in Denmark on the island Funen. And back in August 2020 YONOBI and Japanese photographer Maya Matsuura visited Louise at her studio at Funen to capture Louise working.

Louise Egedal's training started more than twenty years ago, attending art schools in Denmark, Turkey and England. She works in various fields: Ceramics, painting, photography and sculpture. Regardless of the medium, the dna of her work reveals a penchant for the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetics.

Quality, both in terms of materials and time, has the highest priority. Louise is trained in classical, Danish craft tradition - which she combines with the Japanese "Wabi-Sabi" aesthetics, which basically means that you see the beauty of the imperfect. The Imperfect is by design, and creates a new depth and interest in a work.  

The main body of her work show a range of wheel thrown pieces, intuitively chiseled and carved. The Japanese Hakeme-technique is used for brushwork. The flow of her work can best be described as a curious dedication to the experiment while refining her skills, distilling the expression to the core. All her work is one of a kind. All though inspired by the Japanese Wabi-sabi aesthetics, her Scandinavian roots with the penchant for minimalism is a cornerstone of her work. The muted tones of her pieces have a reminisce of the natural surroundings of Denmark.
