Botanical stories

This collection of glass domes with recycled oak pedestals contains fragile porcelain flowers, reflecting the beauty of the natural world around us. It’s an invitation to take the time to look closer and more attentively to nature. To be surprised and filled with wonder …

Surrounded by a blooming garden and wild nature, I’ve tried to capture its beauty in porcelain. Under these glass domes with miniature porcelain wild flowers, plants and mushrooms one can take a closer look to the amazing details of nature.

All the flowers, stems and details are hand modelled in porcelain. Porcelain’s fineness, fragility and strength lends itself perfectly for these natural forms. I enjoy working with this challenging material by just using my hands and some simple tools.

Autumn garden

2 0 2 0

Autumn is the season of abundance. It’s this magical time when everything bursts with its last beauty as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale! Golden leaves are dancing in the wind, reships wink in the hedgerow, ferns are turning into brown silhouettes and mushrooms pop up from the soil which is covered with a carpet of leaves and moss. The essence of autumn is captured in this Autumn Garden!

Everything in our lives is often so fast-paced, instantaneous and immediate that we fly through days, weeks and even years without the opportunity to stop and take a breath. Surrounding ourselves with flowers reaffirms presence- who we are and the world we are so fortunate to live in. Flowers remind us to live in the moment; they are temporary, but by embracing them in our lives we get to enjoy the beauty of their transience. These porcelain Wildflower Gardens are created to remind us of this.

Tinctoria Garden

Nature offers us an unlimited color palette. Plants, animals, rocks and the earth itself, … nature has countless colors in the most beautiful hues. Man has always been attracted to color. There are many naturally occurring plants from which one can extract color to produce natural dyes. This porcelain Tinctoria Garden is filled with nettle and wild ginger for green, ivy for grey-green, knight-sorrel for brown, woodruff for red and yellow chamomile and calendula for yellow. Let’s start colouring!

A collection of vintage watches with a miniature porcelain world of plants, flowers, mushrooms and moss.
