Tone Von Krogh

Biography

Born in Switzerland, grew up in Norway. I came to Manchester in 1994 to complete a BA in Three Dimensional Design at Manchester Metropolitan University and never went back.
After having studios at various Arts and retail centres over the past 20 years, I now work from a purpose built studio in my garden.
All my work is first made on a potter's wheel, then adjusted by hand to form non circular shapes
The current collection of work draws inspiration from memories of snow covered landscapes in Norway. When heavy snow covers trees, rocks, paths and architecture; sharp edges become soft and everyday shapes may become unrecognisable. I try to bring the same feel to my work by softly distorting pieces made on the potter's wheel and giving them bulges and indentations. . I use a grogged stoneware clay and have developed my own range of stoneware glazes with a colour range reflecting the many tones of snow, ice and winter skies.
All the domestic pieces are dishwasher proof.
