Tone von Krogh Ceramics
Browse by Tag
Tone von Krogh produces contemporary domestic Ceramics and is strongly influenced by her impressions from the winter landscapes in Norway. When the snow covers trees, rocks, paths and architecture; any sharp edges become soft and everyday shapes may become unrecognisable. Tone has brought the same feel to her work with a range of wavy vases and softly distorted beakers, bowls and bottles. The colour range is reflecting the many tones of snow and ice and winter skies.
The work is produced using a potter’s wheel, but then cut and reassembled to non circular shapes or given soft dimples or bumps. Tone uses a combination of food friendly glazes on the inside and barium based glazes on the outside and fire the work to stoneware temperatures and mixes all her own glazes using basic materials and oxides.
