Birgitta Jannesson

Birgitta Jannesson was born in 1955 and living in Gothenburg . She works with ceramics, both with everyday used objects and unique art items. When it comes to everyday objects, she wants them to be functional and timeless and that you can see the craftsmanship behind the object. Gladly reduction fired – when she uses the classic glazes such as celadon, temmoku, shino. As for her unique art items she works frequently with various oxides, such as iron oxide, and often with fired photographs. She wants the objects to evoke a thoughtfulness and to convey thought as well as feeling.
