The magic of clay

Pottery - from my hands to yours

I have been making ceramics since 1983 and opened my gallery in 1994. After experimenting with different types of clay, I am now using porcelain. The porcelain has a much smoother consistency and although it’s more difficult to work with, the results are superior. The ceramics are burned at 1250-1260 degrees Celsius, an optimal temperature for achieving the highest quality workmanship. When burned at these high temperatures the porcelain turns transparent and acquires a texture that’s slightly rough and delicate at the same time, wonderful to the touch. Working the porcelain from a shapeless lump to the final product is a fascinating process and infinitely rewarding when it results in a lovely piece of ceramic art.

I design and make everything from mugs to large serving bowls and dishes. I work with many different colours, and sometimes I add gold, silver or glass for a more elegant finish. Visit my beautiful gallery and you’ll find ceramic sculpture, art and wall decorations, candle holders and other wonderful gift items. Purchase a hand made ceramic to take back as a memento of your visit to Svalastog Farm and unforgettable Telemark, Norway.
