Anna Olivia Kristiansen
Anna Olivia Kristiansen is a ceramicist whose work was recently shown as part of the Danish Crafts, Hand On! exhibit at ICFF. Her series of plates called 'The Danish Pig' provide a step-by-step illustration of how pork is made. With straightforward graphics, she follows the pig from birth to bacon. Kristiansen's motivation is simple, "If the consumer wants to eat the pig, they should be able to stomach the background story."
