Wonky Elegance: The Ceramics of Elin Lannsjö

April 1, 2016

Eight years ago, Elin Lannsjö took her secondary interest in design to the next level when she enrolled in a basic pottery course at a local university. Since then, the native of Gothenburg, Sweden, has been honing her skills, largely through trial and error.

For Elin, who is also a stylist and photographer, aesthetics are paramount. She wants her pieces to stand out as art when not in use. At the same time, she never wants her pieces to feel too precious. Hand-crafting each vessel from start to finish, Elin revels in the imperfections and extemporaneous nature of the creative process. Not only beautiful, her pieces, also have an informal quality, making you want to use them every day.

Each collection tells a story, Elin says. Experimenting with different expressions and contrasts, her works range from lithe and delicate porcelains to earthy stoneware, her glazes from cheery pastels to somber noirs.
