Malene Müllertz belongs to the absolute top of Danish and international ceramics. Together with other icons like Bodil Manz, Jane Reumert, Bente Hansen and Beate Andersen, she is part of the legendary exhibition group Ceramic Ways. At Puls Müllertz will be showing around 20 net-like cylinders, networks if you want, up to 50 centimetres high, like three-dimensional patterns in the air. Müllertz was largely inspired by Andalucia and the masterful woven baskets in straw. In Müllertz vessels there is always a correspondence between the exterior and the interior. It seems like she aims to make the form appear as if it were stretched out to make room for an inner core that needs to get out: Her walls are broken through, into basket-like, woven structures. Her choice of form is dictated by impulses from constructions and patterns in nature and culture, in other crafts and materials. Sometimes the net-like structure is cut out of the clay, other times the net is constructed by means of a coil technique.
For her newest works, Müllertz uses a wide range of colours: going from red, yellow and blue to more earthlike hues like white, black and brown. Müllertz networks belong to the most outstanding ceramics she has produced in years.
