We are delighted to be giving the Swedish ceramic artist Maria Kristofersson a solo show at Flow gallery.
Drawing and painting are the basis for Maria Kristofersson’s work in clay. Her ceramics can be seen as three-dimensional drawings. Lines and surface texture are important features within her work. Kristofersson works with earthenware clay with a restrained color palette of terracotta, white and black.
The fragile and vulnerable are juxtaposed with robust and strong shapes. The familiar forms of boxes and cylinders act as a canvas for her subtle surface textures. Kristofersson believes that expression is the important element within her ceramic practice, not functionality.
