We initiated a collaborative project in 2015 that was supported by The Swedish Arts Grants Committee. The purpose of the project was to investigate and explore screen printing on tiles and at the same time seek a new dialogue with our respective materials and artistic expressions in which screen printing is the common denominator.
The result of this collaboration is now an ongoing project where we have developed our own techniques and methods to create textures, colors, prints and shapes of stoneware tiles. Our way of working with the ceramics is both experimental and traditional and we strive to find new paths in the field of craft.
Please contact us if you have any questions or a proposals for collaborations and commissions.
