Karen Bennicke's work is featured in many important international public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Museum of Modern Ceramic Art in Gifu, The National museum of Stockholm and The Design museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. Bennicke describes her work as "constructions, reminiscent of architecture, that constitute a kind of form-bearing membranes between the exterior and the interior." She creates sensorial and complex geometric forms by looking at landscapes and urban structures. Her work rejects the traditional methods of making wheel-thrown ceramics in favour of a process of using moulds and hand-building with slabs of clay. It demonstrates a more unpredictable and experimental approach, as well as her concentration on conceptual and unadorned sculpture. Bennicke is one of Denmark's most boundary-defying artists, having been influenced by Italian futurism, Suprematism and the Bauhaus during the early stages of her career.
