Lone Skov Madsen(° Denmark, 1964) was trained as a ceramist at Danmarks Designskole in Copenhagen. She later became co-founder of the Exhibition Space for New Ceramics, also in Copenhagen. Her works are represented in the main ceramic museums of Denmark.
After a first successful show in Puls Contemporary Ceramics in 2002, she is now back for a second time. In 2002, Lone Skov Madsen showed the Brussels audience what she is best known for: her platters, circular shapes about half a meter in diameter. With its simple, neutral form, the platter presents itself as a canvas on which she models her volcanic structures with running, drifting glazes. In 2006 she will show some new platters, next to a series of sculptural works in the shape of thrown, folded and modelled objects resembling bowls or vases. They are still full of structure and texture, but now in a thee-dimensional shape.
In connection to the exhibition at Puls, the book “Le(the) Plat(ter) 2003-2005” will be published. The book is a summary of the last years’ work with plates. Some of the works depicted in the book will also be on show.
