Marit Tingleff is known for having a strong decorative presence in her art, and for her distinctive artistic methods. Often working on large, monumental scales, she takes ordinary, domestic items – such as platters and chargers – and elevates them into powerful, sculptural objects. Tingleff’s art is often a product of experimentation, with spontaneous ways of mark making. For instant, the use of light and shadow to create perforation makes unique patterns and surface texture.

“Marit Tingleff’s plate forms are a tribute to the traditions of the design and decoration of ceramics, but their monumental proportions remove them from the realm of function, and conventional making processes “
– Sarah Griffin, curator
