I work in Clay/Ceramics. Becours we live in a country with cold winters I only work with stonwhere-clay so that I can have my ceramic outside even if it´s get a bit frosty.

Most of my skills I have learnd my self. I have been attended some amaturesclasses when I was yonger to.
2. What is your inspiration?
My insperation is fairetales, Fantasystorys/films, Vikings, dragons, Historys about old coultures and more.
I do look at my childrens movies and sometimes finds nice things there that gives me insperation.
And boks from the past, like when my mother was young gives me a great insperation.
Sometimes I see something in a friends garden or on the internet that I fancy and get going on that .. to translate it in to clay. Like my gargoyle.
