Nothing But Brown

With this exhibition in Gallery Blås & Knåda, Stockholm, Sweden, I paid tribute to craftsmanship in fusions between ceramics and furniture. Brown earthenware combined with wood and textiles highlight the values of past times in a contemporary context.

 

The aim was to invoke memories of childhood, home, family, safety and togetherness – and to encourage conversations about these themes. The objects are functional but their principal role is to make viewers reflect on and start discussions about time vs. waste of time – the skillfulness of craftsmen vs. industrial mass production. The entirety of the show and the atmosphere of the exhibition space was in focus – not the individual objects.
