Selected works by Turi Heisselberg Pedersen

Apr 23, 2020

Copenhagen-based handicraft artist Turi Heisselberg Pedersen graduated from Kolding School of Design, Denmark. Later on, she was lecturing there since 1994 to 2007, while working on her sculptural work, admired worldwide, both in museums and private collections.

In her practice, Turi considers the vessel as autonomous sculptural object. Working with clay, the classic natural timber, she underlines transition process from nature to culture. This very means is for the artist a starting point for further work. “We have an inherent understanding of beauty and shape evolved by thousands of years of visual impressions from our cultural history, but especially also from nature. I am aiming to create a visual and emotional reading of the objects, working with shape, rhythm, volume, movement and texture," Turi explains.
