Top photo is to show Heather how dark a gray morning in Göteborg is this time of year (9 o'clock, in Luleå the light comes around 11). Catch every ray of light!
I live on top of a hill (overheard a cell phone conversation today, a woman I could tell from her dialect is from the flat south Sweden said "I'm on some bloody alp here". That's an exaggeration) and have my studio on the next, by the arrow.
Today Camilla and Morran visited the studio. Camilla is guestblogging at Designsponge, she will tour her blogfriends in Göteborg (among other things) and I'm happy to be one of them, here. It was fun to see what photos she took, seeing with fresh eyes. I think the studio is rather grey and dusty; in her eyes it was much colourful than I thought.
She asked who my favourite ceramic artist is and I gave her the top name, since I heard him give a lecture some 15 years ago, Jun Kaneko. Not only his work but also the approach, how could I miss having him in my favourite list?
Read about Jun Kaneko here, from Mission Clay Project in Christa Assad's blog here, more photos here.
Rest of the day was filled with things that had nothing to do with ceramics, like a nice lunch meeting with the group of parents planning next summer's football trip. Hopefully 25 of our fourteenyearold girls in Azalea BK will play USA Cup in Minneapolis next summer. And hopefully I'll go with them. Will let you know what happens with this little side activity.
