From Function to Fine Art
Elisabeth von Krogh had her breakthrough as a ceramic artist at the same time as Post-Modernism gained a strong foothold in Norway. This was no coincidence. For ceramics, Post-Modernism led to liberation. Much of what Modernists had looked on with scepticism finally became appreciated: strong colours, decoration, style quotations and, not least, humour. These have all been characteristics of Elisabeth von Krogh’s ceramic works since the early 1980s.
