Emotions in clay

  • • Mette Maya draws on psychotherapy in her work
  • • She makes various hand-built shapes
  • • Her pieces go through multiple firings and glazings

Mette Maya Gregersen trained in ceramics in London, before taking an MA in Art Psychotherapy at Sheffield University. She finds inspiration in nature, its growth and structures as well as in transforming her own emotions into clay, where the texture of the surface and its colours play an important role. The metaphorical names of Mette Maya's works often reflect her emotions. Her recent sculptures have been made using thin slats of wood which burn away during firing, gently recording the marks of what was once there. Combining earthenware and stoneware glazes, relinquishing control of the outcome, and embracing the element of surprise are essential components of Mette Maya's work.
