Here I am taking a picture of a vase I just finished in my workshop at Lauvstø in the wonderful town of Grimstad, Norway.
I opened the place in 2004, but as you can see in my CV, I've had different jobs before that, mostly in Stavanger, where I took my education as a decorator.
I worked at various shops, stores and institutions, did some painting and interior decorating, designed posters, took care of exhibitions etc.
Before moving to Grimstad, I met the well-known ceramist Carl Olaf Olsen in Sandnes. I started working for him, and he taught me a lot about the art of ceramics. So one thing became more and more clear to me: my future lies in a career in shaping clay into objects of art.
And if you want to find out what I've been doing since I opened my workshop, please take a look at the pictures of some of my products."
