Iben Overgaard Pottery

Ottawa | Ontario

I am a self-taught Danish potter living in Ottawa, Canada. I have a background in Art History, specializing in design and painting from the turn of the last century, and this probably influences my style and my preference for Scandinavian functionalism.

Danish simplicity, a state of mind where you inherently seek the simplest of forms and strive for the utmost quality, is my aim when I sit down at my pottery wheel.  I love to shape soft clay into something pleasing and useful. It fascinates me how I can fashion something so essentially human and simple. What I strive for is to design stylish yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye and, above all, are practical for use in the modern home.
