Born in Denmark Lene studied ceramic design at Kolding Arts and Craft School from 1974-78. The school’s philosophy emphasized learning by observing nature. Subjects such as drawing, wheel throwing, handbuilding and chemistry were studied delivering a thorough education of ceramic practice. From 1979 Lene worked in a pottery in Copenhagen for several years and developed further skills learning from the other ceramists in a production workshop. During these years she also had the opportunity to develop her own work for exhibition and sale. Holidays were spent travelling in Europe. Living in Northern Norway in 1983-84 Lene assisted a ceramic artist with a large mural as well as producing her own works to sell. Moving to Melbourne in 1985 produced her own work in shared studio facilities as well as teaching pottery classes and establishing her own studio at home in Heidelberg in 1992. Lene chooses to work with high temperature stoneware and porcelain clays fired in an electric kiln. Lene has held several solo exhibitions and has taken part in numerous group exhibitions in Australia and overseas. Lene continues to experiment with clay, glazes and explore decorative techniques in order to continue to develop new styles of work.
