About This Project

House of the Rising Sun | Gulgong, Australia

Height: 2.5 m. Built July 1995 in Gulgong, NSW, Australia as a joint work between Jørgen Hansen and Nina Hole, Denmark out of 1 ton of red clay dug at the location. The context was an international ceramic symposium ‘Clay Sculpt Gulgong’ arranged by Janet Mansfield, Australia. They were inspired by the foreign country and wanted to make a window through which you saw a piece of Australian landscape. The shape inspired by Nina Holes sculptural work with houses. The way of construction was developed out of the possibilities offered by the not very plastic clay.
