Torbjørn Kvasbø (b. 1953)
Kvasbø is one of the most influential representatives of contemporary ceramics and he occupies a central position in international ceramic art. Since the 1970s, he has been exploring the potential offered by clay, via its different textures and baking modes. His monumental works, which are abstract and overtly organic, are displayed, not only in a number of European museums, but also in Korea, Japan and the United States. Over recent years, Torbjørn Kvasbø has been working on the repetition and accumulation of the same cylindrical form.
