Eva Hild (Swedish, 1966 - present)

Swedish artist Eva Hild hand-builds large, but delicate, ceramic sculptures inspired by the internal and external pressures of life. Hild remarked that "My inspiration is the ever-changing landscape of my own life and environment! I try to relate my work to my life. What is happening and how does it feel? Pressure. Flow. Strain. Ramification. Inside turns outside. As a starting point I put words onto my feelings, and use the vessel form to translate this into three dimension."
