From her small studio in central Sweden, ceramic artist Camilla Engdahl transforms clay and porcelain into utilitarian sculpture embellished with bright, playful designs. Describing her work as “Nordic and unintentionally retro,” she is nonetheless inspired by the “great expressions and beautiful, bold patterns of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.”
Engdahl studied at the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg, which laid the foundation for her handcrafted ceramics, each thrown on the wheel or cast by hand. Her surface designs, often bold geometric shapes, bring character and personality to her ceramics. Engdahl finds fun in the challenge of creating practical pieces for everyday use and exploring new uses and forms for them, believing “It’s important to be curious—and I am.”View more artists and designers.
