Jane Ostermann-Petersen

Born June 11, 1964 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Lives and works in Copenhagen / Amsterdam.

“Dreaming big. To make small beautiful… My work is centered around non-permanent spaces and structures for active processes and conversations. In the process of creating these large-scale works, smaller functional objects often come to life. This process of no-waste, flexibility and simplicity are what inspires me.”
