Swedish grace


Mia E Göransson (her website is under construction but you can find more info and pictures of her work here) and Kinna Björklund are exhibiting together at Wadköpingsrummet in Sweden.

Mia E Göransson is showing unique pieces in bone china which is a highfired translucent material with a will of it's own! I love the way she allows the thin bone china to bend from the weight of the thicker branches. And just look at the pink contrasting pieces below. The bone china is filled with granite stones.

Kina works in earthenware which is a low fired clay, which she pierces and cuts into, creating intricate bowls or wallpieces.

Kina and Mia were educated together at Konstfack and they now have their workshops at the old porcelain factory in Gustavsberg outside Stockholm. They are members of applied arts cooperatives blås&knåda and Konsthantverkarna in Stockholm and they are also represented by beautiful flow gallery in London.


An installation Mia has done at a tube station in Stockholm suburb Råcksta. Bringing beauty into the everyday.

tak, tak skoll indeed! ;)

Mia's work makes me go weak at the knees....I would love to own one of her pieces one day - maybe one of her bone white pieces with the splash of yellow glaze inside {I saw them in elle deco years ago, and cannot find the article for love nor money now!}.....
