It’s All About Horses
In Sweden, polymer clay is mostly considered as something for children, not as art material. I will present the very small Scandinavian polymer clay community and talk about my personal development as a Swedish polymer clay artist, showing my sources of inspiration and how I created some of my pieces of art.
I often ”translate” jewellery techniques into sculpture. I will also explain why I have specialized in these very special horse sculptures. In August 2017 I have participated as a gallery artist at two of Sweden’s biggest horse shows; Jönköping Scandinavian Horse Show and Falsterbo Horse Show and I will share what I learned from that. I will also discuss my interesting collaboration with Swedish ceramist Xanna Åkervinda and also show my contribution to ”Into the Forest” – the things on some trees that start as green leaves but develop to small horses that fall to the ground, become orange and run away… They really are new leaves…
