  1. You may be interested to see a new video on top Danish potter, Anne Mette Hjortshøj here Anne Mette Hjortshøj | Ceramics 19 November 2016 - 18 December 2016 Major Exhibition Her pottery combines beautiful aesthetics with a function befitting the hardiest domestic ware.… We are delighted to announce our second major UK exhibition of ceramics by top Danish potter, Anne Mette Hjortshøj. Anne Mette has been putting aside her very best pots for 4 years in preparation for this show. Anne Mette Hjortshøj began her career in ceramics with a student apprenticeship to fellow potter Phil Rogers in 1998. Rogers has said that he was apprehensive before he met her; with her arrival, however, he knew instinctively that Anne Mette was not only humble and attentive but greatly talented, displaying inner strength and determination that will ensure a long and creative career. Anne Mette has built three large kilns in her native Denmark, the latest a two chamber wood firing kiln built in September 2011 at her ramshackle farmhouse on the west coast of Bornholm. Though all her pots exhibit her desire to challenge herself in glaze and form, her slab bottles are certainly Anne Mette’s tour de force. Her pottery combines beautiful aesthetics with a function befitting the hardiest domestic ware.. I enjoy to see a potter working at the edge of things rather than playing safe. I see that sense of adventure in Anne Mette's pots. She comes from a long line of potters from Denmark, often female, who make or have made strong, gutsy pots with little thought to compromise. - Phil Rogers http://www.goldmarkart.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=65&Itemid=769
