Steen Ipsen (born 1966) is a Danish artist known for his contemporary free form ceramic work. Starting his artistic career in the 1990s he is now well known internationally and has been quoted by the Danish Arts Foundation as "one of the most gifted ceramic artists in Denmark". His work combines the clean, simplistic form of traditional Danish ceramics with bright colours, creating a new hybrid form.
He generally creates his art in series, his works follow on from a common theme which is usually based on natural occurrences such as crystallization, cell division and cell fission. Aside from his artistic career, he has also worked as a lecturer for the Danish School of Design (Copenhagen) from 1996 to 2004 teaching design basics as well as the ceramics art form.
