Merete Rasmussen was born in Denmark in 1974 and currently lives and works in England. In 2005, she graduated from the prestigious Designskolen Kolding, in Denmark with a degree in Ceramics.

Merete works with abstract sculptural form and is interested in the way one defines and comprehends space through physical form. Her ceramic and bronze creations represent an idea of a captured movement. Rasmussen’s idea manifests as a flowing form, stretching and curling around itself, or can derive from repeated natural forms, or even complex mathematical constructions. Different expressions of form appeal to the artist and result in her continuous exploration with newfound variations. She creates and is inspired by soft but precise curves, sharp edges, concave surfaces shifting to convex ones, the discovery of inner space, and the strength of negative space. Merete is intrigued by designs about continuity — one connected edge running through an entire form. Rasmussen’s use of strong colors builds importance, strength, and energy in her work.

Examples of Rasmussen’s work are represented in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), in New York, and The Fitzwilliam Museum, in Cambridge, among others.
