"secret code" 2020

„Secret Code“ is the title of my work. Seventeen singel pieces, put up on a wall.
Each handbuilt and dubble glazed. The green glaze running over the edges.
ca. 2500 x 65 x 23 cm.
My work has been for a couple of years about landscapes, islands, inspired from my seven years partly stay in Norway.
Listening to the news, full with catastrophies all over the world, I started this work. Turning the world upside down.
A kind of secret message, magic melodie, the recipe to save the world.
Utopic? Yes, I know, but it should be allowed to dream.

"The work is turning upside down 2020

A statment to our situation the world is right now in. According to a very old English phrase: "upside down" , meaning, things being out of order, not in place.
