Ceramic artist based in Stockholm, Sweden
All my objects are hand built. The hand built technique allow for a soft tactile organic form that I like, mostly coil built or pinched. I work with the clay´s own character. I use a groggy clay and simple tools. Sometimes I reinforces the expressions by burnishing the surface with a stone on some parts and polishing with organic beeswax after firing. On some parts I scrape through the surface of the clay to reveal the grog/chamotte. It´s all about simple, often classical, sculptural forms and texture. I love the contrast between the rough parts and the smoothly, burnished ones.
