Merete Rasmussen
– ceramicist (Denmark)
Merete is Danish and moved to London in 2005. Scandinavian design has influenced my work; clean curves, sparse decoration, simplicity. The broad ceramics curriculum at Designskolen Kolding provided me with the ability to use different ceramic techniques as well as a strong understanding of form. Sculptural form is where my passion lies and is the area I wish to continue exploring.

Karin Eriksson is a Swedish based designer/maker of functional ceramics and one off interior pieces.Educated at the University of Uppsala and Stockholm in Sweden and at Central Saint Martins University of Art and Design in London, UK. Worked at Tullbergs advertising agency in Stockholm, set up as Karin Eriksson in London December 2000. Has since done design work for habitat, several collections for Karin Eriksson, private commissions and participated in exhibitions and trade fairs in the UK, US and Sweden.
