Organic Series by Steen Ipsen

Steen_2014_2

Organic is a series of ceramic sculptures by Danish ceramic artist Steen Ipsen. Ipsen’s work is characterised by a form of  “decorative ceramic expression involving both form and decoration. Decoration is integrated into the form and the form itself is spatially decorative.” In the case of the Organic series, the decoration enhances and emphasises the shape of the stoneware base, drawing an almost map-like topography on the sculptures body. Each of Ipsen’s sculptures are unique made of stoneware. He sands all the sculpture until the shapes are completely clean before he glazes them. The sculptures are burned up to 3-4 times.
