Viken and Ekbacken

An exhibition of ceramics by Lotta von Bulow

Porcelain - Small 6 is from the collection Ekbacken.

Ekbacken is a refined, fresh collection made using pure porcelain. It takes its name from the family home in which Lotta has her small summer studio, tucked away in the Swedish archipelago, not far from Stockholm. Porcelain is wheel-thrown before being bisque-fired and later high-fired. The brilliant white of the porcelain is then either left unglazed on the exterior and later hand-polished for a smooth matte surface or glazed in a fresh green, reflecting the wild meadows that surround the house. In contrast, the interior of each piece is glazed with a transparent glaze. Each Ekbacken piece is individual, and as a collection, designed to be displayed in three or more vessels, creating a subtle contrast of color, height, and shape.

About Lotta von Bulow

Ceramicist and Interior Designer Lotta von Bulow lives and works between London and Stockholm. With a signature aesthetic of classic, understated design, Lotta works predominantly with porcelain or a porcelain/stoneware clay mix to create collections of vessels. The work is done with a limited colour palette of soft muted tones, which, when coupled with the unglazed exterior, results in pieces that are understated yet captivating. Her porcelain pieces are often hand-polished at the end of her process to soften the surface to near perfection. The mixed clay pieces, in contrast, are given a rougher, textured surface for an unpolished look. It is suggested that the one-of-a-kind pieces are displayed in groups of three or more to obtain the engaging visuals intended by the designer. Inspired by both architectural angles and natural shapes and textures, Lotta's designs are brought to life in sketches before being wheel-thrown, glazed, and high-fired in London or her Stockholm archipelago studio.
