KARIN NYSTRÖM


Karin upholds and updates the Scandinavian earthenware tradition and her work with clay, slip and glazes stands out with its unique sense of flow and softness. Her friendly and functional practical pieces gain life in their encounter with the user. Karin mainly throws her pots but also uses other design techniques. Meals, nature and the ceramic material itself offer inspiration for her work going forward.
