Danish Crafts Collection: Charlotte Hargreave
"Hargreave completed her education at the Glass- and Ceramic School on Bornholm in 2002. Since 2004 she has run the glass workshop Celsiusglas with two other glass artists Sia Mai and Karin Mørch. Hargreave’s work is typically exploratory in nature, taking a specific technique as its starting point. Her works are created on the basis of a large number of samples, which she blows, cuts up and pieces together in ways that often produce results varying from what the original intention. Hargreave gets her inspiration from the design of the 1950s and 60s and her work has a clean-cut, simple expression rooted in Scandinavian design tradition. She has received several awards for her work, including a grant from the Jubilee Foundation of the Danish National Bank and the Toyota Foundation. In 2007 Hargreave will be participating in the Craft and Design Biennial as well as exhibiting at the Danish House in Paris."
