Daniel Gillberg is a Swedish artist, studio potter and paper conservator based in Oslo, Norway. Daniel creates unique functional work from traditional materials combined with narrations of his own photo transfer enamels. Stories for the user to rediscover and to infuse with their own values and meaning while using it in the every day life.


Daniel believe in the well crafted and the many qualities and tactile values that the hand crafted can bring.


"A good pot helps us to reconnect with our physical senses as we explore it with our hands. An even better pot generates food for the mind and might even spark conversation".


Daniel is very much inspired by the traditional craft as well as contemporary expressions such as street art, craftivism and classic collage. He has showed his work in several countries and his photo collaged tiles can be found across the continent, left in public spaces to be discovered. 


DANIEL GILLBERG

I am an artist, a maker, and a conservator. I make art. I craft and sometimes I take care of others art.

In late January I had the oportunity to return to the Centre for Ceramics in Berlin to round up my work there. My residency will end on March 6. In conjunction with this project I was also able to visit Palma, Mallorca and the studios of Joan Miró. A real treat! I was surpriced to find his simpler and more minimalistic paintings very atractive. Perhaps my scandinavian heritage that kicked in? 


In Berlin I have been working on many small projects and have found much new inspiration to maybe or maybe not, continue working on back home in my own studio. Regardless, the time in residence have given me many leeds and eureka moments about my work as an artist. Why I am drawn to specific themes and expressions or what is important to me as an artist. Time will tell how these things will play out. 


My next big adventure will be attending the annual international clay conferance in the US by the end of March. NCECA 2020, this time in Richmond Virginia. Maybe I will see you there?
