“Forever Green”
The twisting shape of the sculpture reflects the strongest shape in nature – the spiral. The ceramic process itself includes all elements of nature – earth, water, fire and air – making it both natural and sustainable.
Its results are also sustainable – the world’s oldest works of art are made from ceramic. My sculpture is coloured with fired clay-based dyes and metallic oxides which, in contrast to glazing, makes the surface weather-resistant.
The surface texture and the green tone signal a focus on nature and the title reflects my wish of remaining GREEN FOREVER……..

Edita Rydhag: Forever Green

To me, nature is the path to a deeper truth, in which metaphysical questions are united in existential reality.
It is also the source of a wealth of shapes, linked to sensual textures that follow strict geometric laws. The substance of the objects inspires me to create new, symbolic abstractions.
I formulate my thoughts about the grand, the strong and the resilient in fire clay mortar, contrasting with the fragile and sensitive in the china.

Question:
What is the place of ceramic sculpture in public environments?
How does the tactile surface affect the sensory perception of the sculpture?
