Ceramicist, artist, and teacher
Born 1950 in Malmö. Attended HDK, Academy of Design and Crafts, in Göteborg. Pottery is my principal means of expression and I have had my own studio since the mid.1970s.
After completing my studies at HDK I set up my first studio at Lysekil, where I also built my first kiln, Later on I moved to the Stockholm archipelago and for many years had my studio at Gustavsgerg’s former porcelain factory on the island of Värmdö.
I work mostly in high-fired stoneware, thrown as well as slabbed and pinched. Some of my pieces have a clear function, some are sculptural objects, but irrespective of which, to me, form is always important. I mix my own glazes, try them out, remix them, glaze in several layers and refine. Or discard them. Sometimes the result is not satisfactory until after having fired a third or fourth time.
Since 2018 I live in the province of Västergötland, where I share m life and studio with artist Peter Prütz. From time to time we exhibit together. Now, in these photos, I show how I make the cups and bowls for Chokladkoppen and Kaffekoppen. Maybe you just now are using one?
Perhaps an unforgettable moment…
