FREDRIK PERSSON

The original idea behind many of Fredrik’s works comes from drawing. The line reminds him of something, a plant, an animal, a house, a previous piece. The objects are modelled or thrown in stoneware and often find themselves in a thought-provoking border zone between practical ceramics and sculpture, a blend of abstract and representative. His boldly designed, often glazed pieces may be candlesticks or bowls in functional terms but they also tell a bigger story, harder to encapsulate.
