Making pottery is like a journey
My recent pottery is very much connected to the West Coast of Sweden. In its colors and ingrediens of my glazes. Most of the glazes are mixed from ashes of the local trees like birch, apple, chestnut and others, grown in the local environment on the West Coast. Also it is fired with wood growing around here. In the powerful process of the firing the ash will be transformed into glas alike effects, which are very much part of the characteristic of the pots.
Once the kiln has reached 1260 I am introducing salt into the kiln, which wanders around with the flame and melts on the outside of the objects. That creates a salt glaze.
Some of the object are fired laying down on sea shelfs I have found here on the coast. The firing creates a mark of the sea shells on the post. I always loved to see that on traditionally wood fired pots. There you have directly the parts of the nature connected to individual pieces of pottery.
The world with its different cultures and abundance in nature are a great source of inspiration. My pottery is made in editions that developed with time and allows you to make choices beyond the uniformity of mass-production.
