Working in ceramic sculpture, storeware, and porcelain, Louise Hindsgavl’s works are predominantly white though they are far from thematic lightness. Hindsgavl began creating traditional decorations and tableware, but her work now focuses on subverting such commonplace themes by utilising mythology and fables inherent darkness. Diving deep into human behaviors and monstrous creatures Hindsgavl’s pieces range from small figurines to large-scale installations that catch the audiences’ eye in equal measure.
