Join Max Waterhouse as he takes a walk around Anne Mette Hjortshøj's fourth major ceramics exhibition at Goldmark. With nearly 700 pots made over the last three years, it represents a celebration of local clays from the Danish island of Bornholm where she lives and works. Among her recent projects was a special commission to supply tableware for a Kyoto pop-up for Noma – famously ‘the best restaurant in the world’.
Anne Mette Hjortshøj embarked on her ceramics journey under the guidance of the legendary potter Phil Rogers in 1998. Despite initial doubts, Rogers quickly recognized her immense talent, humble nature, and unwavering determination, ensuring a successful and innovative career for Anne Mette.
Since her last show at Goldmark in 2020, Anne Mette has been commissioned to make pots for the legendary Noma in Copenhagen, travelled to Japan, and her Wild Clay Project has been featured in Crafts Magazine.
Anne Mette Hjortshøj's pottery captivates with its practicality, charm, and sheer beauty. Nigel Slater aptly describes her work as "pots that enrich my life simply by being there." Prepare to be enchanted by Anne Mette Hjortshøj's extraordinary pots.
