Marit Tingleff is a ceramic artist based in Hønefoss, Norway. Initially studying at the National College of Art and Design in Bergen (now the University of Bergen), she went on to become pro­fes­sor and head of ce­ram­ics at the Oslo Na­tional Acad­emy of the Arts from 2013–2016. Taking the landscape of her own daily life as a starting point for her large-scale ceramic plates, she takes ordinary, everyday objects and elevates them to something much more powerful. 

Her work is included in a number of museums including the Norwegian National Museum in Oslo, Norway; the Design Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, United Kingdom. She has been awarded several public commissions including work for the Norwegian Government Representation Buildings in Oslo, Norway.
