Along New Tracks is a material­based exploration, where I’ve picked, broken and reworked concrete, brick and paving to create ceramic glazes. The process has given the vases an aesthetic and identity that suggests a Gothenburg building upwards and outwards, and the tracks left behind.

J u d g e s ’   c o m m e n t s :

Waste products and residues from building sites create glazes in a sober, refined colour scheme. With ancient artisan technique, timeless universal forms are combined with an urban, site-specific identity. The materialisation of a slow, reflective urban contemporary archaeology.

Axel Danhard was awarded the 2023 Röhsska Museum & Dynamo Väst scholarship.
