Aesthetics meets functionality

  • • Mette initially worked as a photographer
  • • Her tableware takes inspiration from the island of Bornholm
  • • She is both a ceramicist, a maker and an entrepreneur

Originally trained as a photographer, ceramicist Mette Duedahl felt she lacked hands-on experience with material as photography became more digitised. She studied at the Ceramic Design Studies at the Royal Danish Academy on Bornholm, here she found that the three-dimensional way of working was crucial to her. Working with her hands in the clay enabled her to transmit aesthetics on a functional level creating a subtle and understated series of tableware that shortly after her graduation became wildly popular. Since then, Mette has set up her own practice and shop on the island of Bornholm, where she sells her handmade series HANDMADE, made on location in her studio, and the commercial series LAND, produced by a small workshop in Portugal.
