Shiny Little Treat
Here's some serious eye candy for you. These playful, sensual and statuesque porcelain sculptures are made by Swedish artist Erika Emerén.
The series Shiny Little Things is a mix of those pre-adolescent desires of “everything that glitters is gold” and the adult’s perspective where the edible look becomes an expression of sensuality. Impressive sizes, yummy colours and with textures that you can't stop yourself from touching.
Artist Portrait: Emeli Höcks
By creating art pieces from waste materials, Emeli Höcks is breaking norms and pushing for change within the creative industry as well as from the bigger world surrounding it.
Emeli is a designer with a background in art and a special interest in sustainable issues and material research. She sees it as a responsibility of artistry and design to constantly search for new and better ways of working towards a sustainable future. From this belief she’s creating materials, objects as well as discovering new shapes by using materials in our direct vicinity. Instead of creating something completely new, she’s creating beauty from what we already have right in front of us.
For The Ode To, Emeli Höcks has created a playful yet minimalistic collection with a dimmed and natural colour palette. The material used is created purely from waste and is also biodegradable with the main components being paper, seaweed, charcoal, starch and eggshells. We find her strive to create this unique material very impressive.
The Ode To great aesthetics, strong women, art buffs, dreamy spaces and all other things we treasure.
The Ode To is an online gallery and an effortless way of discovering contemporary art by emerging artists. We careful collect and create limited and one-of-a-kind artworks to reasonable prices, so that you can get something truly special that few others have.
The Ode To means tribute - our tribute is to great artistry and design, and not the least to female artistry. We mainly work with female creatives to counterweight the imbalance that exists also within the design and art world.
The Ode To launched in Spring 2018 by friends Helena Carlberg and Anna Lukins in Stockholm, Sweden.
