TILED STOVES AND CERAMIC ART
FOR DYNAMIC INTERIOR DESIGNS AND PUBLIC SPACES

For two decades I have been actively working to evoke interest in the tiled stove as part of the modern home.

Cultural heritage is combined with artistic expression and dedicated work to combine functional ceramics with unique form in architecture.

I always give my artwork full focus regardless of scale, be it public commissions, unique tiled stoves or sculptures.

In recent years, I have also undertaken commissions to create art in public spaces such as hospitals and schools. My work is often formed into soft, undulating shapes which are asymmetrical to create harmony.

Regardless of the type of project or sculpture, presence and care is taken with the materials, so each unique detail will enrich the overall expression and fulfill my idea.

”Craftsmanship is at the heart of everything I make. Each piece is made by hand with care, with great care.”

”A tiled stove made by Annika Svensson delivers even and pleasant warmth, along with a bit of madness and lust for life.”

Annika svensson – CONTEMPORARY SENSITIVITIES

ARTISTIC INTERPRETATIONS OF CERAMICS, SWEDISH TILED STOVES & PUBLIC INSTALLATIONS
This publication provides a comprehensive overview of the oeuvre of Annika Svensson, whose large, warm and inviting tiled stoves have become magical linchpins, expressive works which represent a unique contribution to contemporary ceramic art.
For twenty-five years, Annika Svensson has rejuvenated an entire line of ceramics with nerd-like insistence and tenacity. The tiled stove, for centuries a proud companion in Swedish homes, is given by her hand a sculptural form in addition to its utilitarian purposes.
