Gitte Lund Matte
I was born in Copenhagen and for nearly forty years I have lived in Quebec. My husband and I built a small house in Gaspésie at the foot of a cliff, with a full view of the whales. Minke whales, fin whales, blue whales, humpback whales and belugas are now part of my universe.
My whales are shaped by hand with porcelain clay, polished, fired in a pottery kiln, then smoked with fuel found on the shore of the St. Lawrence.
