Welcome to my vernissage!

A great friend of mine asked me if I want to exhibit my art at the café/shop “Te & Kaffehuset”, where he works, and I answered: “Of course, I do!
So I will be showing some of my latest pieces at “Te & kaffehuset” in Malmö, Sweden.

Sorry that I haven’t updated the blog for so long!!

I have been away for three weeks on practise-work on three different places, one new place for each week!

It has been three intense weeks and I was sick two of the weeks but I stayed and did my best to work anyway. I am still not fully recovered but I have energy enough to go back to school in Eskilstuna and continue to create recycled art!

Well, I am gonna tell you about my three past weeks and where I have been:

1. ReRagRug – Stockholm

The first week I got to work with Katarina Brieditis and Katarina Evans, with their latest project “ReRagRug”, you can see pictures about this here:

There is also an interview with me on the blog :


2. Senneby Trädgård –  Älmsta (Väddö)

The second week I visited a organic farm, Senneby Trädgård, on the island, Väddö. Dan and Britt-Inger who run the farm have 38 sheep and they also grow organic vegetables. During my stay I had the luck to see the sheep give birth to lambs, they are so adorable and cute!

3. Återbrukshyttan –  Bollnäs

The last week I was working with glass on Återbrukshyttan with Anny Jernberg and it was so much fun!

I had a great time in Bollnäs working with glass, it was hot, hard but also unbelievably fun. This is my first time working with glass and it was really exciting and I truly love it! Anny is a great glass-artist, she is a funny and lovely person who took so great take of me the whole week! She showed me how to reform old beer and winebottles into drinking glass and candle-holders. I also got to engrave the bottles with my own drawings and patterns and I really enjoyed the engraving-work.  Make sure to check out more of Anny’s great glass-works and art on her website:

Engraving on bottle, by Ysten. The theme is of course inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s “My Neighbour Totoro”.

During my week in Bollnäs I stayed at a great hostel, Voltersberg. It is run by Inger and Kjell Malmström, a nice and generous couple who even invited me to their home for tea and cookies. The hostel was so nice and cosy, it was clean and tidy and close to citytown. So if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Bollnäs, I strongly recommend hostel Voltersberg!
