Check gallery website for hours and additional info
Scott Richards Contemporary Art is proud to introduce Merete Rasmussen, an accomplished contemporary sculptor working primarily in ceramics, but also in bronze. Drawing inspiration from the paradoxical concept of the Mobius strip—the mathematically derived, one-sided geometrical surface with no boundaries, Rasmussen’s sculptures capture movement as a flowing, infinite loop.

The artist hand builds each of the sensuous forms by using a stoneware coiling technique that requires intense patience, precision, and spatial awareness.The gentle, entwining curves of the sculptures evoke her travels to the Namibian sand dunes as well as her new home in the gently rolling hills of Sussex County.
Rasmussen holds a MA in Ceramics from the Kolding Design School in Denmark. Her works have been exhibited throughout Europe and the United States and are a part of prestigious public collections such as: Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, the National Museum of Scotland in the United Kingdom, and MAD Museum of Arts and Design, New York. Rasmussen is Danish and has lived in the United Kingdom since 2005.
