Marie Langaa Pedersen

The Teabag and Cotton Cup are cast in porcelain based on a sewn textile mould. The ability of the clay to reproduce the textile material creates a texture that appeals to our sense of touch. The classic door knob, which is used here as a handle on The Teabag, also reflects the grip of the hand, thus highlighting a story about closeness and intimacy. Marie Langaa works in the field of tension between applied art and conceptual craft. The textile cup and teapot tell a story of homeliness through the recognisability of the materials. An essential objective for her is to create an illusion - a visual trick that challenges the beholder and questions what the eye sees.
