To Flower

2021


This project is about embroidery and decorative porcelain. In my practice as an artisan / ceramicist, I have often been interested in crafts traditionally linked to women's making, and how we value it in today's high-tech society. I have examined my own prejudices about art, and discovered that the more a tradition or technology is linked to women's history, home and decoration, the lower I have valued it. By combining floral decorative porcelain and embroidery, I make an attempt to highlight this cultural heritage and make it visible to a new audience. I want to try to re-evaluate the traditions associated with women's doing that I have mostly seen as decoration, both for myself and for others.

Exhibited as window display at Sintra, Craft Days, Gothenburg, 2021
