Lone Beiter is a ceramic artist based in Dingle, Co. Kerry. She graduated from Kolding School of Design in her native Denmark in 1992 with a degree in Ceramic and Glass Design. From Kolding she moved to Copenhagen and ran a ceramic studio for a number of years before moving to Ireland.
A lifelong fascination with the forms and patterns of nature informs her work. Growing up on the windswept, sandy, west coast of Jutland was a lesson in how wind and water create landscape. This fascination remains the same and is now focused on the unique landscape of West Kerry. The primal patterns expressed by sea and wind as the contours of the mountains and the ripples on the beach are integral to her work and captured with a playful exuberance. Complementing her work of capturing the energy of nature, her ceramic boats capture the manmade structures that are the human response to this energy.
Lone works in high fired stoneware and porcelain and utilises a combination of techniques such as throwing, slab-building, plaster casting, press moulding and carving. She also experiments with glaze formulas to find the nuance of colour that accentuates her dynamic sculptural forms.
