ABOUT MY WORK
In my small studio located in the city of Malmö (south of Sweden) I make short series of functional stoneware
. The signum is basic and classic with few different clays and glazes. I sell directly from my studio or from my webshop.
I also work with projects for exhibitions
. For more than fifteen years I've used the red clay from a small abandoned brickyard - I dig it up myself and use it directly from the ground. The clay reflects the brickyard heritage in the region and in my work it also expresses my impressions from the site, which the nature now has recaptured.
During 2016-2018 I produced a film
- 'I rely on the clay being solid'
- which is both a film and an exhibition, with the same title. The film is about 14 minutes long and was made in close collaboration with filmmaker Terese Mörnvik. It was presented in the exhibition without titles or credits, together with ceramic objects. The film was part of Reel to Real Filmfestival during London Craft Week 2018, among other screenings during the year. The project has been carried out with the support of Konstnärsnämnden/The Swedish Arts and Grants commitee, co-production Film i Skåne and Boost Hbg.
I am born (1968) in Malmö. After my university degree in cultural-, society- and media science (1991-1996) and worked a few years for a private company (1997-1999). I completed my ceramic education at Capellagården, Carl Malmsten School, Öland (1999-2001). After graduation I started to work for professor Signe Persson-Melin as an assistant in several different projects (2001-2005).
Since 2001 I have my own business at Helmfeltsgatan in Malmö. Since 2007 I also work parttime for the national Arts and Crafts Organisation Konsthantverkscentrum as project developer/manager.
