Follow along on my creative journey with clay and ceramics, via Patreon!


Inspired by nature and wildlife, history, folklore and folkart – I handbuild my projects with sculpting, pinching, coiling, rolling – no wheel (so far).

I work from my small home studio in Sweden and fire my ceramics in a communal electric kiln, sometimes I fire in an actual fire in a pit in the ground! I love experimenting, coming up with new ideas, trying new techniques and I hope you will find it interesting and inspiring.
