The project ”Fraction”, from latin fractus – broken, explores the realm of thoughts and describes the mind as a sequence of fragments, pieced together to a whole. By approaching it from an angle it may transform – as memories do. The project originates from a sense of how memories is scattered and getting vague over time. It may be unavoidable or needed. But also, memories may become distorted when seen trough our filters and by that falsified. How real are our memories? The materials I choose to work with are nordic birch, light and dense, smoked oak veneer and industry-blown clear glass. The project took me 250 hours and is my journeyman piece – a certificate of craftsmanship – and it is reviewed by The Swedish Craftcouncil.
This stool originates from the classic construction of a three leded stool that will stand steady on a uneven ground. The craftmanship behind the production is visibel in the smal details.
The material in the stool is nordic birch, a threaded rod in steel and a nut in bronze.
The price for the stool is: 3500 kr
For surfacetreatment I usually use a light white waxoil or a furniture soap.
Glad, glänta, glänsa
The inspiration for this piece originates from a glade in the woods.
The forest have not always been perceived as a peaceful place as it is seen today. The deep woods could be dark and uncertain place to travel trough and then the glades were then a sunlit place to rest. So the opening in the center of the furniture could be a place where you put something valuable.
The material in the piece is maple and birch.
The sloeberry cabinete orginates from a brief that challenged me to make a piece for the kitchen.
The kitchen for me is a place for time, it is a place where things takes time. Time to boil the hot water for a cup of tee, time to read the paper and eat your meal. This a time that is often missing in todays society, time that I think we should try to recapture. I wanted to create a piece that could represent this idea, so I created a ficitve person, a old man in a cabin with a slowly lived life. In the autumn he harvest the sloeberries and make him self some liquer in the kitchen. The bottled is placed in the cabinet and it is used in time.
The cabinets outside is thorny as the sloeberry bush and the material is nordic pine.
