An experimental ceramic project that challenges the use case and production of ceramics
Mia Rønnow Noll is 21 years old and hands behind RaskBarn. She is originally from Stavtrup, a small town outside Aarhus. But now lives in Copenhagen where she is working as a ceramic.
In this project, I have explored different forms of expression.
The finished sculpture has both a rigid, but also an organic expression.
The strict expression of the piece is born from the meticulous turning of the three-dimensional facets, after which I softened the expression by hand modeling the sub-elements with a softer expression.
For me, it has been incredibly exciting to make this ceramic sculpture because I have worked with clay in a different way, yet still intertwined with the familiar rhythm of turning clay - which is something I love.
The final piece is an unconventional table runner, composed of six unique ceramic tiles. Each tile, crafted from recycled clay, carries its own distinct character and function within the ensemble. Some tiles serve as candle holders, while others feature bowls or flat surfaces for displaying dishes and objects.
