My contribution to the latest issue of Idle


"Home

Home has been on my agenda lately. I've been kind of lost, floating in space without a home in the way I was used to.
I've left the person and the apartment that I called home. This made me "homeless". That was hard but it also gave me a strange feeling of freedom. I could live where ever I chose.

I think home is a space not a place - a space where no one should enter without your permission. A space where you could feel relatively secure. Maybe it can be an object, but in that case the object makes a space, in your mind, a space where you feel at ease.
Home means a lot to me, it has always done, but maybe in a different way now. I am my home. All I really need could fit in a suitcase or two.
At the moment I am working on "Memoire no 1", right now this is my home."

Printing

It was a long time since I worked with printmaking. It feels like totally new and it is always so much fun to do something new, something that surprises me. Something that I don't know the outcome of. Just started here, but I am intrigued.

Karin + Camilla =

A set of two cups, made in a collaboration between me and ceramicist Karin Eriksson. The cups are cast in a white high fired stoneware clay, glazed in a matte silky soft white glaze and decorated with screen printd ceramic decals. The cups can be washed in the dishwasher and microwaved. Delivered in a hand crafted box from Norrmalms Kartongfabrik. Produced in Sweden and the UK.

Size: height 80 mm (3.1 inches) dia 65 mm (2.6 inches). A cup holds approximately 2,5 dl (0.6 lbs) of liquid.
please note the cups are made by hand and small differences in size or surface may occur.

Shop here!

We also started a joint website now, not much on it yet but still... www.karincamilla.com

The anniversary cups coming this Sunday!

When Karin and I realized that our friendship, this fall celebrates ten years, we thought something special was needed to mark the anniversary. So we created a set of cups in our own specialities - My illustrations paired with Karins ceramics. Making a set of cups feels like the ultimate way to celebrate our friendship and collaboration.

Everything will be ready and available this Sunday in manos webshop. We'll keep you posted!

Already dreaming of spring

Already missing the light and warmth... and there is many more months to go. I've always lived in Sweden but somehow it seems like we never get used to it, the darkness, and every spring we are happy as it is our first spring ever. Hate it and love it at the same time.

Carry on

It takes a long time... and much patience, to do stop motion. But it is a lot of fun!

I just couldn't resist

I love the color and the texture of the cavolo nero, I couldn't resist posting this picture.

We are still working on these

Karin Eriksson was here the other day! Soon, pretty soon this will be a couple of cups/mugs with a handle. And soon they will be for sale at Manos, virtually and in the the shop at Renstiernas gata in Stockholm. And hopefully some more shops because these will be available for wholesale as well :-)
