Elisabeth Maurland

Decorah, IA

I was born and raised on the southern coast of Norway and my work is deeply influenced by the natural surroundings of my childhood. The sea, the mountains, and the forest contain life that have become vessels for my expression throughout my artistic career. The birds, the fish, and the animals move fast, light-footed, upward, outward, sometimes right off the pot. The bright colors and the light weight and simple lines of the pots themselves complete the picture of the joy I feel about the world around me, wherever I am.
