Åberg's works, made largely in black and white, play on the traditional Danish form of the vessel, morphing it into something purely sculptural, even playfully non-utilitarian. Rough surfaces inspired by geology are set in contrast to a refined elegance—new shapes inspired by fossils, old bones, or coral, forms full of light, negative space, and a tensile strength, made possible by the perlite and paper in her clay.
