Nordic nature

  • • Lotta’s signature works are ceramic hares
  • • Her ceramics take inspiration from Nordic nature
  • • She finishes her ceramics with crystalline glazes

Lotta Kvist is a ceramicist from Malmö, nowadays based in northern Sweden, where she runs a ceramic workshop equipped with two throwing wheels and two kilns. As she says, “It’s a small workshop, but it works perfectly for me”. There, she follows all the process; from designing to glazing the ceramics she creates. A self-taught artisan, the first handcrafted object she produced “was a hand pinched little bowl. I let it dry and then oil-painted it in the garage. That happened 50 years ago, and after all that time, my mother still has it”. Since then, Lotta has perfected her artisan skills by taking classes and attending courses, both in Sweden and abroad.
