MALIN GRUMSTEDT


Drawing her inspiration from the Sörmland landscape and her own garden, Malin shapes built pots in porcelain and stoneware. Her work combines fragility and delicacy with confident shapes and unexpected strength. Using precise, time-consuming methods, she creates richly ornamented surfaces, simultaneously demonstrating sensitivity to the inherent properties of the ceramic material.
