Torbjørn Kvasbø (Norwegian, b. 1953) is a ceramic artist of international acclaim, with a career spanning several decades. He lives and works in Venabygd, Norway. His practice is primarily geared towards monumental works that push his personal boundaries as well as the physical boundaries of the medium. Of his work and process Kvasbø states “my work process in the clay medium offers a lot of resistance, and it reveals to me the forces over which I have no control – the incalculable elements of my inner being. My emotions and feelings are physically discharged into the work, and they become actual experiences themselves.” Through this transference of mental and emotional energy into physical sculpture, Kvasbø is continuing in the centuries-old tradition of artist as alchemist.
