Guldagergaard’s studio collection is one of the largest collections of contemporary ceramics in Northern Europe.
our past and future
The Guldagergaard studio collection is one of the largest collections of contemporary ceramics in Northern Europe. It is international in its perspective as well as its scale.
This includes works by numerous wood and soda firing artists, which provides visitors with a vast number of interesting and beautiful surfaces to look at and study.
The collection also includes a comprehensive database of glaze tests and recipes for students, researchers, and teachers to try in the soda and wood kilns. The database is available to help artists create their own language through surface and design.
The collection: our anchor and future
The Guldagergaard Collection is the nucleus and starting point of our research work.
The collection is a journey through the history of Guldagergaard since the establishment in 1997, and it provides students, teachers, and professors with a database of experiments, techniques, methods, and visions.
In a way, the collection is an anchor that tells the story of how Guldagergaard came to be and it forms a huge part of the center’s identity, but it is also a promise for the future, a vision for the development of ceramic art and crafts.
The collection has been continuously expanded and today it is far too large to be shown in its entirety. For this reason, the bulk of the collection is shown in rotating selective presentations in the Apple House Gallery. This allows space for exhibitions and provides opportunities to show the works in new ways and configurations.
