Beer mug is handthrown in lava-stained stoneware clay. It is fired to 1280 degrees Celsius, unglazed and lightly polished. A decal is fired onto the surface at 800 degrees Celcius.

A big drinking mug, which gives associations to old historic tankards.
The mug is hand-thrown, and the decoration on the mug is a kind of label which is fired onto the surface. From a distance it looks like a traditional beer bottle label, however it describes the details of the design and material, instead of the content of the drink.

The Exhibition The Opening is a cooperation between Claydies and Ole Jensen, and we have chosen to work together with the concept: For use.
The focal point is the opening and all the items that you use at an opening reception, so that the opening and the entire exhibition are “for use”.
This way we have been thinking in terms of use, functionality and action. At the same time we have been working with the sculptural qualities in all the different objects.
