Hvidberg Designs small ceramic containers are made in a stylish and strong form design. The design is very craftily, innovative and have very pure lines. The design is strongly connected to the nordic tradition of good craftsmanship, simple and beautiful design. Camilla Hvidberg is the talented artisan behind the brand.
One of the characteristics of Camilla Hvidberg is the thorough design that often have several functions where handcraft, colour and form are linked together. Every item is a unique small story from the nordic world, where the colours reflect the scandinavian sky, that constantly changes expression and mood. She has made a colour diary of the weather for a whole year to daily capture the colours of the nature. It is very important for her, that the decorations and colours of the container is connected to the shape and size of the container – just like it is important to take the frame into account when an image is cropped.
Her unique Artlain containers are made in very thin and almost transparent porcelain. She makes them in sizes where the porcelain in stretched to its maximum performance, which has alway been one of her artistic catalysts – to constantly test and challenge the material. The decorations are a mix of rough lithography and drawings made by hand. Artlain is the abstract painting, the small story, with a very careful handcrafted proces embedded.
Camilla also gets a lot of inspiration from origami, the japanese paper tradition, that also manages to be forming, dynamic and organic at the same time. This inspiration embeds a calmness and purity to her ceramic items. And they will for sure colour up your day!
