Artist Portrait: Tufva Design
In our own experience, clay is a wonderful material with endless possibilities, but it seems to have a life of its own and never quite obey to our will. Therefore it's with great amazement we see Sofia Tufvasson, the hands and mind behind Tufva Design, master this pliant material into smooth shapes and three-dimensional wonders.
Sofia's artworks show an interplay between soft shapes and graphic rigidness, which can be traced back to her Sofia's background as a graphic designer. Each sculpture is slowly crafted by hand and has its own unique shape, finish and expression - which really is the charm of handmade objects. We have picked our favourites from her home studio in Stockholm.
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.
