Artwork

Barbro Åberg is inspired by nature and science as well as light which filter through her pieces. The rugged seacoast of Sweden, where Åberg was born, also influences her work. According to Wendy Tarlow Kaplan co-curator of From the Kilns of Denmark; “Creating pieces on a human scale, Åberg consistently built forms that connect to landscape, structures in nature, and scientific discovery. She has a strong sense of architectural integrity in all that she attempts like molecular diagrams or tracery of stained glass windows, which give solid ground to her work.


Åberg opens up the vessel, the traditional Danish form, and invites light and air into it. Her usual choice of black and white surface treatment gives dramatic contrast and counterpoint.”
