Priscilla Mouritzen

Priscilla Mouritzen was born in Cape Town, South Africa and attended the School of Art in Durban before setting up her own ceramic studio in England in 1968. She spent a decade in England before moving to Denmark where she has lived and worked since. She shows internationally, and also travels as a visiting artist in studios around the world. She makes thinly pinched pots using porcelain and engobe glazes. When held up to the light, her work is illuminated and glows through the porcelain body. Small surface etchings create native patterns, which break light and cast shadows across the table. All the works for this exhibition are black and white. Mouritzen has exhibited widely in Europe and is a board member of the Guldagergaard Ceramic Centre, Skælskør Denmark. She is a regular participant in seminars and conferences on ceramics.
