Robynn Storgaard is a Copenhagen-based maker and ceramicist originally from Canada, who has lived in many cities across the world, including Osaka and Los Angeles. Robynn’s ceramic practice follows a career as an architectural designer, during which she studied large scale building ceramics.
Robynn’s pieces are concerned with slow living and conscious consumption and intended to bring joy to everyday life. Made from locally and sustainable sourced materials, Robynn’s work originates on the wheel and is hand-made with exquisite craftsmanship, enabling it to last generations. Her pieces are meant to be keepsakes, made ‘For the Sake of Keeping,’ the antithesis of the disposable nature of contemporary times.
Robynn is continually exploring the textural and structural results of different clay combinations and the addition of materials like metal granules and fractured porcine. Her work is exquisite in its rawness and rejection of ornamentation in favour of simple carved or fluted linear patterning and muted glazes. This accentuates the forms and materials of her ceramics, which often take inspiration from objects in the background of paintings of the past.
