About the Artist
Gunilla Klemendz creates uplifting reflections of nature in layered ceramics. Her ceramic bowl series is constructed by sculpted leaves, popping with warm colors and pastel hues, adding a jazzed celebration of life as figurative elements exhibit playful scenes she creates on the surface of each carefully sculpted leaf. Her colors are created with kåne in stoneware and metal, layer upon layer, the darker shades reveal the highlights and accentuate the lined patterns behind them.
Klemendz adds depth and reflection to her sculptures, drawing the eye in at each level. She has had an affinity for the visually captivating and explores the intrinsic beauty that enrobes every second of our lives. Every curve is precise, each arch deliberate and the final result a seasonal dose of elemental phases.
“Kung September”, Ceramic
“I mix fantasy and reality as I create my works with colors from Skåne in stoneware and metal. Since childhood, I have been interested in drawing and painting. My great interest is in creating and shaping. It is from walking along the sea or watercourses and by studying people that I get my inspiration. In the creation, I can feel great joy.”
