Two more weeks to go


guardian_of_the_woodsInitiated by Pelle Wichmann and invited by the same I now get to exhibit some sculptures at Fåfängan i Nyköping. They have an autumn market on the 6th of October and Pelle has arranged an “Art path” in the woods. Pelle will show some of his cool concrete art and I will try to complement him with creatures that can feel at home in the woods.


No forest without a troll.

Opening day


To day is the day. We arrived during the afternoon and set up the exhibition during the evening. It’s as much storytelling setting up the exhibition as creating the actual sculpts or taking pictures of them.

I hope some of you have the time  to come.

By the way, the pike didn’t make it. It blew up on me. I new I was pushing my luck with that one. I just didn’t give it all the love it needed. Next time it will be better and actually survive the furnace 🙂

Pushing the artist

I wanted to make a sculpture that defied the laws of material, gravity and balance.It was a great step to work in stone, steel and clay in union. I’ve had it sitting since may but I finally got it mounted today.

Next event



It’s been decided for quite some time now.

I’ll have a new exhibition this summer. The location is no where near home. The gallery is located in Omne just north of Sundsvall and the date is 20/7 – 27/7. The theme this time is “Vittra

Hope to see you there.

Here’s a taste of what I’m working on at the moment.

Day 4

I finally got a hold of some images to share. It’s not much but they do represent that day to some degree. Yes that’s me in the beard.

Visitors have come up to me after taking the tour in the exhibition hall and declared that they are “struck” and “emotionally moved”. And I really don’t know what to say but “thanks”. I had no such intention. I only wanted to create something that people could enjoy without a degree in arts. Enjoy the way I enjoy having a beer. Working on the subject from a illustrators point of view the goal was to tell the story. Little did I know that these pieces of clay would carry such emotion. I have really enjoyed these last months immensely. If these last days shows that I actually can do this then the next logical step has to be to do this elsewhere. In a location where I’m a total stranger. A nobody. Nyköping is after all my home turf and surely that does influence the balance.

Any suggestions?
