Claydies consists of Tine Broksø (1971) and Karen Kjældgård-Larsen (1974), who are both trained ceramic artists from the Danish Design School. Furthermore, Karen Kjældgård-Larsen is the designer of Royal Copenhagen's Mussel Mega.
In just a few years, Claydies have made a name for themselves among the new and experimenting generation of young Danish ceramic artists. The pair work conceptually with ceramics and apply a set of dogmatic rules, which break with "quiet and harmless" ceramics. They introduce new techniques such as sewing a coffee pot in clay and modeling blindfolded. Their popular little pieces of green edges of ditch are sold by MoMa and in Japan.
The duo has received a long list of grants for their innovative approach to their craft, including those from the Danish Arts Foundation, Danish Crafts, the Development Foundation of the Danish Ministry of Cultural Affairs and the New Carlsberg Foundation.
