About

 Reexploring ceramics as emotional objects

“My sculptures and objects are for the mind and spirit. Sensuous. Visual. Inspired by nature but abstracted to make an own impression.
I want to make design that inspires and lasts.”

 

Art objects and sculptures in stoneware ceramics. Every object is made by hand in different modelling techniques. Inspiration, shapes and colors are collected from nature in the design process, and are remodeled to more abstract expressions.
