Make Your Own Scandinavian Village

Graduation Project

I graduated my illustration studies in July 2013 and for one of the projects I made ceramics. I was inspired by old travelling books from 1960 and 1970s, which had beautiful, big pictures of Scandinavia. This gave me the idea to make a ceramic collection that I named “build your own Scandinavian village”. Every cup has a different detail from the Scandinavian landscape, like mountains, villages and woods. I designed and made the cups myself and wanted the cups to be stacked. If you put the cups in the kitchen cupboard, I wanted it to look like the landscape is a continuous design through multiple cups, but it’s also useable as one cup with one part of the Scandinavian design.
