Most of the objects
in the pictures
I met clay 1988 and it
became my main occupation; until 2008, which was a turning point for me,
since I had a stroke, and I lost my abilities to
speak, write, draw, sculpt. The years after
that were filled with reminding my
brain, that we did know how to
do these things. Making viking
vessels became my training program.
A look back in time:
quality of the pictures here may wary,
am most fascinated by the matrilinear, matrilocal,
matrifocal cultures in Europe and
the middle east, that had evolved during many thousands
of years and then was crushed by the patriarchy 6000 BC - 3000 BC.
The Great Earth Mother
is my favourite motif which I constantly
keep repeating in all kinds of materials and techniques.
The other is the serious line, often with associations to the neolithic and paleolithic european cultures that I am so drawn to and love to tell about. They tell about our origins and about the origins of our present culture. They also reveal a lot about us now, in this age.
