About WAUW design
Behind WAUW design I stand, Sussi Krull. IN my workshop at Østerbro I design, develop and produce all my products. So everything is made by hand in our own workshop.
Mostly, I find my inspiration in the landscape and nature. This is probably related to the fact that I have worn my children's shoes in the South Funen moraine landscape, sailed the South Funen archipelago thin and almost lived in the land-water encounter.
My material and inspiration originally come from the same place, it feels a bit like a circle that ends when the results come out of the oven.
The workshop shop is the shop where you can see all the WAUW's collections in one place and with the very large selection.
The shop is located alongside the workshop and is right where everything is created. From the neat idea to the final product coming out of the oven and onto the shelves of the store.
You see the production while you shop, and I think that helps to provide an understanding of the ceramics and the processes that I work with as a ceramicist. You are always welcome to ask questions and take a closer look at the different things I am doing. It gives some interesting conversations that I like a lot.
In the back room I have my ingredients for clay, porcelain and glazes. I mix it all myself and I am especially proud of my large glaze collection that I have developed over my more than 12 years as a potter.
I have two ceramic stoves that run almost every day. It's a bit like playing Tetris when an oven needs to be filled. It's about filling it with as little surplus space as possible. That way I save time and burns.
WAUW design employees
In addition to being in the shop on weekdays, you will be able to meet either Hilda or Molly if you come on Saturdays.
Hilda is a trained ceramicist, and in addition to being in the shop, she helps with the production of WAUW design ceramics, and also makes her own ceramics in a workshop. Hilda is extremely talented, and specializes in e.g. in 3D printing and ceramics. In 2021, she had an exhibition on Peach Corner Gallery in Copenhagen.
Molly has a sabbatical year and spends some of her time here in the shop, where she both stands some Saturdays, but also comes into everyday life and helps with various tasks. She is very interested in learning more about ceramics, so I am happy to be able to contribute to that.
You will also be able to meet Maria from time to time, even though she is often "invisible" behind the screen. Maria helps me with social media and my website. She is also a house photographer, and together we take new photos for use here on the webshop and my social media.
The leftovers are used
It's no secret that there is, of course, some waste in any production - including mine. I work with my former intern, Maria, who is behind MM ClayGround. She picks up remnants of clay, glaze remnants and other remnants from my production, and uses them for her own creations. It's great that as little as possible is wasted.
The idea of reducing waste was also the basic idea of mine collection of Sustainable vases. I found a way I could mix porcelain and clay from the production of the other vases and tableware that could be used for the cylinder vases. The material works well with many of my glaze blends, and that way they can also be used here.
