About Sigrid Espelien
Sigrid Espelien currently lives and works in Oslo (Norway).
Sigrid has a ceramic craft education from the Glass- and Ceramics School on Bornholm in Denmark and a Master in fine art and ceramics from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan, USA.
Sigrid works with ceramics, drawing and events in her artistic practice. In her long-term project Bjørvikaclay: Research from a Ceramic Artist’s Perspective, she uses local clay as a starting point for artistic research about the fastest growing city area in Oslo. Her biggest motivation for working in clay rises from its´ overlap and meeting point with other fields like archaeology, geology, city development, architecture and industry.
As part of the Curio exhibition, Sigrid Espelien will present “The French Fry Holder” (2018).
