Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

metal houses for sale at Etsy

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I´ve updated my Etsy-shop today, adding several oxidized copper houses. My stats are really bad, only 3 visitors the last two months. Hm. Not good. Maybe Etsy is more for fun than for actual sales. Anybody out there who has an Etsy-shop? What are your experiences, do you have visitors and do you sell anything? […]

Welcome to the world!-book

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

I´ve made it a tradition to make a Welcome to the World! -book to each of my nieces, nephews and God-children. This weekend two more are being baptized, and two more books need to be made. I make the outside, and bind the book, but the whole family contributes to the inside content. Each family-member […]

the copper rowboat

Monday, May 28th, 2012

On assignment from a private customer, I´ve made this big stylized, oxidized copper rowboat. It´s mixed with oxidized metal mesh of copper and brass. The size is about 40×80 cm. The family are very fond of spending time by and on the sea, in their boat, and the father is a captain, so the rowboat-shape […]

summer favorite

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Just one of those amazingly beautiful days! Started off with Mostrafestivalen, meeting lots of friends, (and some new), listening to Orgelfall, my friend´s son´s band (they´re great! and I´m sure he´ll be a musician one day), rushing home to make a picnic to bring along on a boat-trip out to the islands… Oh, yeah, made […]

Summer stage

Friday, May 25th, 2012

It´s been a versatile week! Today I´ve been working on transforming this newly build roofed platform into a small theatre stage. The guy downstairs helped me with the backdrop: some fabric I found in my basement… Attaching hooks for the fish-net. Ah, yes, I forgot to tell you: this is a very traditional, coastal-culture show […]

Dream big

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Dream big! And then make the dream come true. I know, it´s hard work. But a dream come true is worth working hard to achieve. Oxidized copper metal with an ICE resin doll, oxidized copper mesh, mica and peacock-feathers. About 10×46 cm (4×11,5 inches)

Play time

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Another house I just made. Play time is the title and encouragement on this little copper house. A chunky lime-green glass heart at the top to express the love for both music and creating. Perfect for a musician or an artist hard at playful creating! The house is about 8×34 cm (3×13 inches) The oxidized […]

Sun! Summer! Smile!

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Summer is here! I´m HAPPY! Can you tell? 😉 I´ve been metal-smithing on my roof-terrasse today. Outside in the warm sun, with bare arms and bare feet. Those who know me, know this doesn´t happen often… Pale enough to match the fence, but happy as a button! Wanna see what I made? Bits and pieces, […]

Small conversations

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Directly translated små samtaler means “Small conversations”. I think it´s important for everyday happiness to have small conversations about the small things that matter 🙂 Magnet, 3,5 cm

Bachelorette Party Painting

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

I had a fun job yesterday! I was invited to a bachelorette party, to involve all the girls in painting for a couple of hours. 1 bride, 10 friends, acrylics & canvases and a little chocolate… that can´t be wrong 😉 We only used blue hues, as blue is Monica´s (the bride) favorite color, and […]
