Peter Held sends Yuletide Greetings from Stockholm!
My first full day in Stockholm was fast-paced, with new experiences abounding.
My first stop was to the studio of a collaborative group of nine artists, all past graduates of Konsfack, Stockholm’s design/craft school. Above, on the left is Linus Errson and right, Jakob Robertsson. They showed a Powerpoint of six past projects, including one at PS 1 and the V & A. Bright group working in a variety of media.
Next stop down the street was the Bonniers Konsthall, a contemporary museum (below).
Then off to visit two premier craft galleries: Konsthantverkarna and Blas & Knada, pictured below. Work was generally functional with a twist and, like all global craftsmen worldwide, currently geared towards the gift-giving season.
Ended the day in the beautiful Gambla Stan neighborhood and after hours of being chilly outside, stopped by to visit my fair glogg barkeeps, below:
On the subway home the graffiti caught my eye.
Tomorrow off to Gustavsberg.
Happy Yuletide greetings from the great north!
–Peter Held, Curator of Ceramics
