Bold Subtlety

Sabbia Gallery is pleased to present this solo exhibition from ceramic artist Ulrica Trulsson.

As I find my direction forward as a maker, working everyday with my material and its processes gives me a particular outlook and makes me notice a multitude of subtleties to hone in on and use.  The clay after being shaped in a soft a fluid state and hardening allowing for fine tuning, emerges from the final firing transformed into functional vessels. In this space where the functional pot meets with the engaging peculiarities of the material, the objects hover slightly between the everyday and the curious. The varying characteristics of their surfaces and shifting shapes of the pots create changing snapshots, revealing details over time. In balancing the familiar with hints of the unexpected, it is a world of subtleties that keeps me intrigued by what I do.
