Christin Johansson, ceramist, b. 1974.
“My works emanate from a fascination of sterile, clinical environments and industrial sanitary designs. The objects are made with irony and humour to arouse curiosity about something as common as the bathroom and its elements.
My works operate in the borderland between industrial design and fine arts, which in my opinion is one of the greatest strengths of crafts: the freedom to not necessarily be functional but to question and discuss function and design. This is an integral part of the ceramic tradition.”
