This is one of my favorite sculpture of all time. One day a woman stepped inside my studio and pointed at "the wind beneath my wings" sculpture that I once made. She said, "I have had a rough time the past month" later she described a horrifying time filled with loss and sickness. Then she ended up saying, " When I look at your sculpture I feel hope, it draws my mind to our eternal hope in heaven. Nowadays I mostly spend my time in bed and I want something like this to hang over it". Tears went down my cheek. I made, Lift me up. And I prayed to God it would help her.
I made this sculpture to a friend who was pregnant. She wanted a reminder of her pregnancy. So I made this woman who is bearing a child. I think there is something very calm and secure about her, which suits my friend perfectly!
This sculpture is a celebration to all a women out there. By highlighting this pice you can create interesting shadows.
Collaboration between Johanna Forsberg & Stefan Markström, Olofsfors bruk. We did a series of works with my sculptures and his painting on them. They where exhibited in Stockholm, Vaxholm summer of 2013.
Up here in northern Sweden we have a lot of beautiful birches, pines and firs. Waving in the wind, following natures every movement. Standing tall, strong. I marvel in their presence. Fine lines grow out of the trunk, in perfection. All different and unique.
A gentle twist, a sudden one. A back can tell many stories. Whats yours?
This dinner table chandelier is made out of copper mesh and gives a delightful varm light to your interior. I thought of a burning cloud when I made this and I think the copper mesh comes to life when the retro lightbulb catches fire!
The structures are made up of steel mesh bend into a soft curve inspired by the logic of pure mathematics. The mesh grid creates a mass of intricate shadows when lit. Also available in various colors, stainless steel and as a light holder with a flat bottom. The translucent lines gives the mesh holder a weightless hovering. The PARABOLID mesh light is the perfect eye catcher in your home.

I tried to capture the innocence and fragile state of any man and woman with this sculpture. Life may have wounded us a bit, and some wounds may still hurt. But we are still standing strong.
