Eva Hild, "Wall Piece", 2008, stoneware, 80 x 75 x 18 cm


Eva Hild is a Swedish sculptor, famous for her otherworldly ceramic artwork. With a masterly precision she creates sculptures of white stoneware, shaped in swaying curls, as if a movement was caught and frozen in time.

When the Swedish Arts Grants awarded her with the Form Award, they pinpointed her expression well: "Eva Hild’s ultra-thin clay sculptures possess an intimacy of the handmade and tangible world. But here’s also a distance, which confirms its aesthetic appeal. There is a duality of fragility and strength manifesting throughout her oeuvre. In these organic shapes, exterior and interior twists and turns through inner and outer pressure filling all cavities with a strong force."
