Merete Rasmussen was born in Denmark in 1974 and currently lives and works in London. She trained at the prestigious Designskolen Kolding, Denmark from 2000-2005, receiving 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, as a flowing form stretching or curling around itself, or the idea can derive from repeated natural forms or even complex mathematical constructions. Different form expressions appeal to the artist and result in a continuous exploration with many different variations: soft but precise curves, sharp edges, concave surfaces shifting to convex; the discovery and strength of an inner or negative space. Merete is intrigued by designs of a continuous surface with one connected edge running through an entire form. Through the use of strong colors the artist further builds importance, strength and energy.

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