Morten Lobner Espersen

For a long time his forms have been simple but powerful shapes, as a counterpoint to the complexity of the glazes. With Horror vacui (fear of empty space) Morten Lobner Espersen refers to pottery items from the Greek geometric period whose décors cover the entire surface. Espersen regards the vessel shape as a neutral yet powerful form that serves him as a starting point to abundantly enhance a vase – this archetypical vessel form – with a three-dimensional, entwined ornament. Glossy glazes underline his pieces’ expressive forms. Applying layer upon layer of glaze is Espersen’s most effective means to create complex surface textures and colors. “Re-glazing a surface several times means risking complete destruction because the glazes eat their way through the clay”, he says. Prices range from 1350 to 15300 euros.
