Paula Martinsson is the person behind fantastically shaped sculptures of Paula Atelier. Creativity has been a part of her life ever since she was a kid, watching her grandmother do oil paintings. Since then she's searched for her own expression and medium, from graphic design studies in high school to interior design studies for a year and finally ending up with clay. She currently studies for a Bachelor at the renowned HDK University in Gothenburg. It's the limitless nature of clay that amazes her and the possibility to shape anything.
Paula Atelier describes her work as organic with non-perfect shapes and showing traces of a human touch. Her sculptures are often painted with dots and tiny lines, a time consuming, but oh-so-lovely feature. We love the soft shapes and the seemingly never-ending creativity in the different forms. No two are the same. See Paula Atelier's collection.
"The pieces I made for The Ode To are inspired by my surroundings. I see shapes, colours and patterns in nature and everywhere I go. My eyes often stick to how the light touches an object and what it does with the shadow and shape. Sometimes I take pictures of what inspires me, and if not, I just keep them unconsciously in my head."
