TINA MARIE COPENHAGEN HANDMADE creates handmade ceramic home objects with focus on high quality and craftsmanship. Simple shapes with elegant, refined detailes, all based on clean, geometric forms, stripped of almost any kind of decoration. If any, the decorative element lies in the material, technique – or function. The subtle silhouettes makes room for the shaded, poetic color combinations and vivid surfaces to play the most important role.
Every material, color and technique is carefully developed to fullfill any idea. All processes from designing, prototyping, moldmaking, casting and glazing are done by hand, which gives small variations on each piece. Showing the work of the hand is an aim, rather than a flaw.
“The workshop in Copenhagen, is where all products are developed, and the production also takes place there. It is an important part of the philosophy to keep the production in Denmark, rather than sending it off to far away countries. This gives a more sustainable production and as a very important point, this maintains important old craftsmanship and knowhow in Denmark, so that the fine ceramics tradition can continue and grow,” Tina Maria explains.
Tina Marie Copenhagen Handmade is a part of Den Danske Keramikfabrik – a new factory owned by 18 danish ceramicists together.
