About me
I started my own pottery studio and shop in 1999, after some years of studies and practice. In my studio, I create functional stoneware for everyday use.

I'm living in the southeast "corner" Sweden. Kivik is a former fishing village facing the Baltic Sea, well known for its summer market and the many apple orchards. It's a region appreciated by both artist and tourists for its special light and beautiful landscape.


My work
My functional pieces are all wheel thrown and much of it will be altered while still a bit moist. The decorations are created by pinching, pushing and stretching with my fingers and also by using stamps and different slip techniques.
I use a local stoneware clay, found only half an hour drive from here. When fired unglazed, it will produce a beautiful varied sandcolored/tanned surface, so sometimes I leave parts unglazed as a contrast to the glossy glazes. My most used glaze is the white tin glaze. It allows the dark clay to shine through to accentuate slip trailed decorations and edges in a rusty brown shade.
