"Ever since I saw a moon jar in Japan I´ve marveled at the skill that goes into making these; the calm, strong expression they possess is impressive. Also, the fact that they are made in two pieces and then assembled add to the complexity of making the jar. Though I´m highly influenced by the Japanese tradition, I´m aware of my Scandinavian inheritance. Making a moon jar is infused with old traditions and symbols; some I might not grasp the full depth of – but I do hope that the sincere love of form shines through in my pieces, and that they too convey calm and strength. That´s what I´ve been aiming for in shaping my jars."
