Copenhagen and Louisiana

I am in Denmark right now and want to share some pictures.
In Luisiana I visited photographer Jakob Holdts exhibition, a large-scale presentation of the photographer’s many pictures from the 1970s until today. The exhibition showed a far-reaching and moving documentary that made me really sad and uncomfortable in the way I take my secure life for granted. It is really worth seeing!
Happy New Year and if you are interested in some danish ceramic take a look at Stilleben

A Perfect Christmas Gift

I got a wonderful christmas gift from Karin Eriksson yesterday who I have been working for since March. Karin and Camilla Engman are doing some projects together and this one is just my fovourite. Mr Black on the mug really inspired me when I was creating Mr Magic for the exhibition down in Croatia. The book is about Camilla and it is Uppercase who has made the suitcase serie. I am so happy for the christmas gift....thank you Karin!

Yesterday I went to Gustavsbergs artgallery. On the first floor they have a shop with swedish arts and crafts and on the second floor is the showroom with inspiring things in ceramic and glas but also really good litterature. I bought my own christmas gift, "Fragiles", an eclectic collection of contemporary work in porcelain, glass and ceramics. The book documents over one thousand striking artistic projects, experimental applications, and innovative industrial products made from these materials by both established and emerging design talents and artists. A very nice christmas gift for those who have any design or handicraft interest!
I also bought this ice flower made of Susanne Allberg, who has her workshop in Gustavsbergs old factory, dram glass made of Åsa Lindberg and a lamp, another piece of art, made by Hisako Mizuno. Down below are some other nice things I saw....maybe something you like as a Christmas gift!

White Christmas

Finally it is snowing like mad. A smell of gingerbread biscuits and the sparkles from the fire make you realize that Christmas is soon here. I think I need to go and visit Gustavsbergs showroom to get some new Christmas gifts.

Christmas is getting closer
It is getting colder now and it has been snowing today. Cedergrenska is still glowing in the dark and this is my view from my house. Yesterday there was a cute little mouse who had moved into Karin Erikssons ceramic workshop.

Today I erased my account on Twitter....Can´t agree more with yvestown

Im making new Espresso cups for Korcula, Croatia.....Here is my first sample!

It´s not my lucky day today. My account on facebook is sending out spam mail to friends and 25 pieces of my christmas production have a crack after the burning! Oh well, I learned that this specific slip didnt allow the objects to be piled on top of each other....

This weekend I went to Gustavsbergs christmas market and bought a piece of ceramic from Hisako Mizuno I love her shapes

Fishfairytale Exhibition Korcula

My exhibition in august 2009

" I walked around on an Island, an Island called Korcula. The buildings were majestic. The wine sparkled in carafes and singing flowed in the alleys. That summer night the crickets played in the evening heat for all the couples who had fallen in love. The water was luminous in a way that led my thoughts to sea-fire. There was a bright turquoise glow that made the surroundings look as if on stage. Suddenly I heard the sea’s song and saw the fish dancing - fish I had never seen before, with a passion to preserve the beauty that once thrived when unknown coral shone in the depths. The colors made me thirsty and alert, excited for adventure. Things that happen in a fairytale, can happen to you....”
This is an exhibition about Mr Magic, Mrs Optimist, Mr Worry and Miss Beauty. Their mission is to open your eyes, take your responsibility and help them to get a cleaner environment"
