Following the Øst-collection comes Nord. This tableware series consists of exclusively thrown objects. Each piece is carefully decorated by hand with colored slips and textures reminiscent of the rough surfaces of rocks, trees and frozen tundras of the far north.
Its shapes and forms carry references to forms found in traditional Sami arts and crafts, Duodji, more specifically the traditional handcarved wooden cups called Guksi. These cups are commonly used in northern Europe by Sami people and the population at large while travelling in nature.
The collection brings together these references to the traditions and nature of the north, to create a tableware collection with the rustic cuisine of Scandinavia in mind. Plates for meats, vegetables and bread, bowls for steamy stews and cups for hot drinks, all made to rest comfortably in your hands during use.
The collection is still under production, but the webshopwill be regularly updated with new batches throughout 2019.
