Featured in AGENT – exhibition during Stockholm Craft Week


During Stockholm Craft Week 2020, the Swedish Craft Center presents a member exhibition at Bellmansgatan 5 with eight craft artists who in their work relates to function in different ways.
“It is an exciting time for the notions of function and purpose, they are not stable and can be seen in motion around different perspectives. Operating for whom, for what, and why? Function as material, as inspiration, pretext and bearer of tradition shows the amplitude among the members of the Swedish Craft Center and their view on function and what that it is today.”

The selection is made by Auli Laitinen, active as curator and jewelry artist and member of the Arts and Crafts Center for 20 years.

Participating artists
Tora Greve, textil/textile Limham
Lisa Juntunen Roos, textil/textile, Stockholm
Carsten Nilsson, trä/wood, Hammenhög
Ammy Olofsson, glas/glass, Bro
Linda Ottosson, metall/metal, Stockholm
Rikard Palmqvist, keramik/ceramics, Stockholm
Sanna Svedestedt Carboo, smycke/jewellery, Göteborg
Lena Viltok, doudji/sami handicraft, Jokkmokk

Under Stockholm Craft Week 2020 presenterar Konsthantverkscentrum en medlemsutställning på Bellmansgatan 5 med åtta konsthantverkare som i sitt arbete förhåller sig till funktion på skilda sätt. Det är spännande tider för begreppen funktion och syfte, dessa koncept är inte stabila utan befinner sig i rörelse kring olika perspektiv. Fungerar för vem, för vad, i vilket syfte? Materialet, inspirationen och berättelsens funktion för bruksvaror, traditionsbärare och unika verk visar på bredden bland Konsthantverkscentrums medlemmar och på deras syn på vad som kan vara funktion och vad den är idag.

Urvalet är gjort av Auli Laitinen, verksam som curator och smyckekonstnär samt medlem i Konsthantverkscentrum sedan 20 år.

New Adventure


Big news! On October 17th, our daughter Alba arrived and changed our lives forever. We couldn’t be more in love! This new adventure means that I am currently on parental leave and replying to emails will take me longer than usual, but don’t hesitate to get in touch. I will be back to work by end of summer 2019 and I am happy to plan for upcoming projects!

Best wishes,

I am very happy to have been selected among the 15 artists representing Sweden in The European Triennal for Contemporary Jewellery 2017 in Mons, Belgium.

The European Triennal for Contemporary Jewellery, organized by WCC BF (World Crafts Council Belgique francophone), is an internationally recognized event where two European countries are invited to join Belgium at every triennial. This year: France and Sweden. Three commissioners were chosen to select representative works of their respective countries: François Vanderauwera for Belgium; Brune Boyer for France and Sofia Björkman for Sweden.

With support by Iaspis, The Swedish Arts Grants Committeé, I traveled to Belgium to participate in the inauguration of the triennal in October 2017.
