" I dont know why I usually dont make a lip on my pots. I guess its just my personal taste with very bulky and "box like" style. but since I started to look at architecture, and got an overdose of traditional japanese pots while working in Tokoname, it has slowly grown on me. I love this combination of white with crystals and pink streaks, that I call "Cherry blossoms." ”

About the april edition 2019 - "Spring”
"The word Spring in swedish means "Run". And thats the feeling I have carried with me this month. From snow and frost to +15 Celsius and sunshine. Repotting like crazy and letting go of the wire while the branches are pulsing, and the buds shoots of. A look in the garden is a palette of yellow, white, red tulips and green grass with chlorophyll running like blood in the veins. And the air carries the sent of smoke from the gardens, where people set fire to branchs and leaves, to mark the death of the winter and to scare of all creatures of darkness in a celebration to the rebirth of life.
