Charming and playful - this sculpture takes its inspiration from the skies seen from artist Maria Lenskjold's balcony as she spent time indoors during the pandemic. We're happy to such cool artistry come out of the situation in the world. 

Playfulness is a constant in Lenskjold’s artistry and ceramic artworks often lead the viewer to recognise an implicit function with the object, for example a vase, only to discover by closer inspection that it is merely an abstraction or a caricature of said object, meaning this artwork doesn't actually functions as a vase. The sculpture uses sgraffito technique where a pattern is created by revealing the material underneath. 

About Maria Lenskjold: Danish and Copenhagen-based artist Maria Lenskjold graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Art in 2011, but has been making art since childhood. Growing up in a commune based in a big house with pink curtains and checkered green floors with purple walls, this whimsical play with colours and shape clearly left its mark.
