I grew up with nature around me, on a small island in the south of Norway.
Stone, trees and water gives me the inspiration to explore the elemental energy of clay as it is transformed into ceramics. The potential which resides inside every soft lump, just waiting to be shaped and manipulated into seemingly infinite forms and finishes of handmade ceramic art.
It was the three-dimensional quality of clay which led me to study art & sculpture at Avni Institute of Art in Tel-Aviv in 1993. As an ceramic artist I have ever since been captivated by the enjoyment of creating custom made pottery with unique decorative beauty combined with functional simplicity.
When I moved to Amsterdam in 2002, I immediately started up-new in the same spirit and found my studio in an artist complex. It gives me the greatest amount of pleasure in my work knowing that there are many people out there who enjoy using my pottery.
