Unique. Steen is part of the avant-garde group of cutting-edge Danish ceramic artists. His works are distinguished by their high level of craftsmanship.
With his “Tied Up” sculptures he lays down special rules for how his works should be structured and designed. A common feature of his works is variations of geometric systems based on organic and mineral growth principles such as crystallization, cell division and cell fission. Methodology and chaos as well as simple and complex structures are intertwined.
Ipsen works with monochrome glazes. The strings of leather or PVC oft he “Tied Up” pieces form a contrast with the object’s shape and express the influence of the decoration on the sculpture’s movements.
Steen´s works of art express vigorous vitality, but also a clear graphic expression. His vision is to put the pieces in a spatial context.
