One of the most successful Danish ceramists of his generation, Espersen has brought a new energy to the tradition of ceramics through a 20-year exploration of his object of choice, the vessel. Whether his vessel is of a modest, cylindrical nature or a chaotic, writhing mass, he strives to create a quality in his glazing comparable to Japonist pottery. He lives and works in Copenhagen.

Morten Løbner Espersen Horror Vacui (Blue/Matte Black) $17,000
Morten Løbner Espersen’s Horror Vacui is built around a traditional vase-shaped core, the outlines of which are just discernible beneath a labyrinth of serpentine elements. This work features a dense variegation in the glaze, and the topsy-turvy roller coaster of the pot produces endless visual interest. The gravitational slide of the glaze adds to the volcanic energy; near the base, a few suspended drips preserve that sense of fluidity. It is a one-of-a-kind.
