  • Anne Mette Hjortshøj - Major Exhibition
    28 Nov 2020 - 24 Dec 2020

    ‘I laugh when I hear Anne Mette say “It’s just mud, it’s just clay” because to me, as I cradle one of her pots in my hand, it is anything but.’ Nigel Slater for Goldmark’s Anne Mette Hjortshøj catalogue 2020. Practical, charming and simply beautiful the work of Anne Mette Hjortshøj is probably best described by Slater as ‘Pots that enrich my life simply by being there.’ Goldmark is welcoming visitors...

  • Artist - Anne Mette Hjortshøj - Biography
    Anne Mette Hjortshøj began her career in ceramics with a student apprenticeship to fellow potter Phil Rogers in 1998. Rogers has said that he was apprehensive before he met her; with her arrival, however, he knew instinctively that Anne Mette was not only humble and attentive but greatly talented, displaying inner strength and determination that will ensure a long and creative career.
    Anne Mette has built three large kilns in her native Denmark, the latest a two chamber wood firing kiln built in September 2011 at her ramshackle farmhouse on the west coast of Bornholm. Though all her pots exhibit her desire to challenge herself in glaze and form, her slab bottles are certainly Anne Mette’s tour de force. Her pottery combines beautiful aesthetics with a function befitting the hardiest domestic ware.
