on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler
Podcast I have an interview
with Danish ceramic artist Nina Hole. Her monolithic pieces are
equal parts sculpture and performance art. With the help of
building teams she constructs towering forms that are fired in
place and unveiled at their peak temperature. Her "fire sculptures"
have been built in a variety of environments including both urban
and rural settings in Mexico, Denmark, Australia, the U.S. and many
In the interview we talk about the role religious architecture plays in inspiring her forms and the development of an easily mobile building/firing process. We also discuss the Museum of International Ceramic Art-Grimmerhus and the Danish ceramic residency Guldagergaard, both of which she had an instrumental role in starting.
