Hilde Mjolsnes Ceramics

Randaberg, Norway

"A fusion between Japanese Wabisabi and Scandinavian cool."
Hi my name is Hilde Mjølsnes.
I am a Norwegian artist and I am mainly coiling my big sculptural piece in clay.
My work is highly influenced by Korean and Japanese ceramics.
I spent 4 years in Great Britain where I got my master’s degree in ceramics.

My sculptural pots are never finished before they have their right location.
The space is equal important as the sculptural piece.
Wescover creator since 2020

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"So many times have I started in the morning looking at the pots thinking that this is the ugliest piece I've ever made. In the beginning this was a devastating and very painful experience. Nevertheless, I soon learned to embrace the feelings. I discovered the freedom it gave me to not give a damn and let the clay and my hands do the job. And in the end of the day, I am almost certain I would be happy and surprised by the results."

Q&A

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"When the piece is finished it is standing on its own feet's. They are ready to go out into the world with out me directing.
Nevertheless I want people to see the attitude of each pot and give them the space they need."

Q&A

What is your favorite material to work with?

"My favorite material by far is clay. Clay is a very plastic material and has a wide range of options in making. Clays has a will of its own and if you are trying to push the clay it can be tricky to work with. Happy accidents are a very common issue for artists who work with clay and I will argue that a lot of exciting work has risen from a disastrous project."
