Mette’s creative practice is centred in a strong belief that when the boundaries between design, art, craft and making are effaced, the potential for magic occurs. Drawing on a life’s library of worldly experiences and a strong connection and respect for nature, she creates with curiosity and intent. Originally from Denmark and a a newbie (4 years to Muriwai and New Zealand) it is a place she fell in love with immediately. “There’s such deep rumblings in this area, like mother earth whispering ancient knowledge. It immediately fills me with calm and excitement at the same time”.
Mette works in a variety of materials including fibre, porcelain, wood, metal and occasionally synthetics. “I have always loved the tactility of things. The need to touch, to feel the soft moss on a tree, the cluster of tiny muscle shells under my feet, a perfectly smooth, warm stone in the palm of my hand”. Working across a wide range of disciplines including painting, sculpture, photography, machine felting, machine knitting, and digital technologies; it is all for the joy of the making and the need to create artefacts and spaces that encourage a sense of wonder.
