Rose Jensen-Holm lives and works in Brisbane, Australia. Her work is a juxtaposition of primitive forms shaped through a modernist vision. As a result, her ceramic practice interposes itself somewhere between the two styles. Varying techniques are used in Rose’s work depending on the desired result, hand building for an organic aesthetic, or the precise shaping of the potter’s wheel. The result is expressive art with an intrinsic functionality.
A marriage of stoneware and porcelain allows Rose to play with shape and form to create new identities embedded within the clay. This amalgam of materials imparts fascinating results when combined with creative glazing. In this sense, form and surface decoration play equal roles in the realisation of Rose’s vision. Both stand united, one never taking precedence over the other.
