Ninna's pieces, quite simply, evoke emotions of delight to Kelly and I. We see Ninna's lines as strokes of emotion - where they will go, how they will be applied, how the stroke will express itself on her pieces, feels different on each piece ... the emotion of the line is raw and true. Ninna's pieces speak to us, and we feel good as we admire, study, and follow these lines. Mostly, it's lovely when creative works can be used in our everyday lives as well as admired for their natural beauty. Display these functional pieces.
I work with hand-thrown porcelain, often altering the thrown forms so I get new and personal shapes in the clay.
My work is minimalistic, but still with a strong, personal voice. I focus on detail to make a perfect whole.
My challenge is to make products that is a joy to use in everyday life, and has my story included. I make contemporary work, which to me means, that I take threads from the past and mix them with was going on around me at the moment.
I work with functional pieces as well as bigger unique work and I exhibit my work both in Denmark and internationally.
I have a BA from the Danish Designschool, Bornholm and have lived and worked in London for three years before moving to Aarhus, where I now live.
Here I have my own little studio gallery called “Formuleret,” that's Danish for “articulated” but at the same time, the word is put together from the two words “form” and “clay”.
I form clay and I articulate my story through clay.
