About vit ceramics
I grew up with a sewing machine in my bedroom. My grandmother was a dressmaker and my earliest passion was for textiles. I was always making things! After studying weaving in Sweden, I was putting myself through college, designing and making clothes, mostly from fabrics that I had screen printed. However, when I took a class in ceramics at the University of Washington, there was no turning back. I was hooked on clay!My first line of ceramics, "Kri Kri", is animated and whimsical. This brightly colored tableware is decorated with black, slip-trailed decorations. “VIT”, my second line: porcelain tableware, ceramic vases and lamps, is the opposite. VIT is simple and elegant with a Scandinavian sensibility. Available in 6 colors chosen to harmonize with food, flowers and foliage and detailed with thin white lines, VIT focuses more on form than on pattern.The first vases I made were bud vases that I designed for Barneys Japan. They wanted an item that could be given by a bridal pair to their guests, a tradition in Japan. These early pieces were decorated in the Kri Kri style. Today, the vase collection, which has expanded, continues to grow with the VIT line. I am developing the popular organic shapes further in a range of lamps.Through my ceramics, I aim to bring warmth and beauty into the home with handmade objects made carefully and thoughtfully.
