anders winberg - wood artist

Anders Winberg is one of three artists in the first exhibition this autumn at Blå Stället konsthall, where I have my new job as curator/producer. Lucky me who will meet with so many artists and other creative people.

I first saw Anders' work at a hands-on conference for craft instructors some ten years ago. He still manages to challenge craft traditions in the most respectful way and can innovate a great idea from nothing.

The photos are from when we picked up his amazing ladders from his workshop. They ladder steps are attached by the wood shrinking when it dries, without any glue. Parts of the long straight ladder were nibbled by the elks in Slottskogen.

Anders workshop is history any day now, due to gentrification of the street, Tredje Långgatan.
