McKnight Resident Artist: Ann-Charlotte Ohlsson

We are pleased to welcome back Ann-Charlotte Ohlsson to the Clay Center during October, November, and December. Ohlsson was last at NCC, in 2004, as an assistant to Nina Hole. Ohlsson currently lives and works in Rønne on Bornholm in Denmark. Her education includes studies at the Glass and Ceramic School in Bornholm, Denmark, and The Art School of Norrköping, Sweden. Her fantasy-inspired biological forms have been exhibited internationally most recently in Devour, Grønbechs gård, Hasle, Denmark; Serendipity, Laurel Gallery, Bakersville, North Carolina; and From a Salt Kiln in Denmark, Zeeno Space, Seoul, South Korea. Her sculptures, intended for functional use, are repetitive in nature, yet are singular pieces, identical to none. Her process is a contemplative experience — time is not of the essence, but is wisely used in managing her artistry and life — and is best described by the Chinese proverb,

“Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.”

Ohlsson will give a presentation in Northern Clay Center’s library starting at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, October 15. More info>>
