Triumph & Catastrophe


”Like everyone else in his generation of Nordic potters, he was raised to think of ceramics as more or less brown. Vivid colors and luscious glaze textures were forbidden fruit.”
– Glen Adamson in the essay ’Forbidden Fruit’

”Triumph and catastrophe: in Espersens’ work they are dialectically related. You might even say that the Dane has embraced an ‘aesthetic of catastrophe’”
– Jan de Bruin in the foreword

“I’m still learning how to unlearn. To stay in the discomfort of not knowing the final result.”
– Morten Løbner Espersen in his essay ‘Complex simplicity’
