Blue Loop

Merete Rasmussen
2013

This is the largest piece made up until this point by Merete Rasmussen. She was able to make larger pieces thanks to getting a bigger kiln and developing the skills to create larger pieces.

Rasmussen has completely covered the piece in bright blue slip (watered down clay) which not only gives it colour, but also a soft, matte surface which almost looks like velvet, or flock.

This object was given to the Gallery by The Art Fund and was selected by our curator through a competitive process at COLLECT, the contemporary craft fair held annually in London.
