Join Anne Mette Hjortshøj for a masterclass in her studio on the island of Bornholm just off the Danish coast as she prepares press moulded square bottles. She finishes by throwing the neck of the bottle and describing how she will glaze and decorate using finished examples. ‘I spend most of my time in the studio working on my wheel, and I like the process, but sometimes it’s nice to get away and do something different. So I started making these press-moulded square bottles, in which you have a flat canvas that you can work on and that can show off the glazes. I see the materials in a different way when I see this canvas, when I see a picture more than I see a three-dimensional object.’
