Editions: Handmade and unique 
Material: Porcelain with hand-painted blue and gold 
Size: ~ 22 cm high, 12 cm wide
Exclusively created for The Ode To

In the unique series : ) / : (  Sofi Gunnstedt is telling the stories of history while flirting with the characteristics of today. Her vases are made in ceramics and show the nature of a classic porcelain vase while the emojis adds the present. Notice also the thumbed surface of the porcelain, a wink to how we use our phones by thumbing the screens. Genius if you ask us. Turn the vase around to choose your mood for the day. 

The vase is handmade and the motif is uniquely hand-painted just for this specific vase, so there's just one vase like this available! Porcelain is a difficult material to master as it dries quickly and is hard to shape, therefore this vase is also a great piece of craftsmanship.  The hand-painted golden details require yet another burning, so this one has been in the kiln three times!

Some words about Sofi Gunnstedt: with a Bachelor in Ceramics and Glass from Konstfack in Stockholm, she creates pieces that explore art’s role in language and communication. By curling and thumbing clay and ceramic, she creates sculptures and vases that communicate without the use of words. Sofi Gunnstedt creates high-quality and unique pieces while still keeping her aesthetics somewhat messy and playful. We found her graduation exhibition and instantly fell for her brilliant eye and technique. Read Sofi Gunnstedt's artist portrait
