My practice invokes and expresses memory; though I’ve lived in the US for many years, looking back comes naturally and, at times, comes unbidden. My recent work, The Stacks, echoes the impressive collection of awards my father won as a competitive marksman when I was a child in northern Sweden. Arranging my hollow ceramic forms into stacks is to suggest something familiar yet abstract, and I practice my ceramics upon functional and familiar forms that have been altered into abstract sculptures, to emphasize imperfection and deconstruction over function.
