Claydies

Claydies was founded in 2000 by Karen Kjældgård-Larsen and Tine Broksø. Both Karen and Tine graduated from the Danish Design School in 2000.

“Tine throws a lump of clay and Karen catches it. Karen throws it back to Tine but it falls to the ground. We try with a new lump. This time Tine catches it and starts shaping it. It is a ping pong process, in which we are always hunting good ideas. Sometimes we wear our bowls on a catwalk. Sometimes we are inspired by horrors and murder our pots. And sometimes we set up dogma-rules and work blindfolded. We strive always to renew ourselves and make ceramic design that matters. That is to have fun and give fun...”

Growing!

It looks simple – but the Grass vase has proven to be one of the most difficult products to produce. Shifting from a few items pr. week to mass production has been a very bumpy road, leaving many grass straws broken in the process.

How to make Grass

Grass is developed in several phases. The handmade vase consists of three pieces, a bottom, one or several tubes, and grass blades that are hand shaped until the right form is obtained.

We hope you by now know that we recently opened our very own webshop. Last week we ran out of the famous Grass vase in size medium. What did we do to solve the problem? We teamed up with the visitors at the High Museum of Art in downtown Atlanta and forced everyone to make medium size Grass vases!!
