Swedish ceramicist Stefan Andersson caught my eye some time ago with his handcrafted ceramic cups. While he has a wider range of work the cups are, at least from my perspective, the crowning glory of his collection. He recently exhibited his cups at Formargruppen in Sweden, where his collection was picked up on by a number of design blogs. Andersson has a unique philosophy when it comes to the creation of his ceramics. In his words “I do not strive to be innovative, but think it’s impossible not to contribute new elements just as it is impossible to do something completely new.” It’s an intriguing philosophy that has provided Andersson with some exceptional results. The full catalogue of his work can be seen on his blog, though you’ll want to be sure you’ve got a translator handy because it is all in Swedish. His exhibition of cups from 2009-2012 (or koppar in Svenska) is also well worth your time to browse.
