Gustaf Nordenskiöld Intro - Svenskt Tenn

Gustaf Nordenskiöld is an artist, designer and curator based in Stockholm, Sweden. His ceramic work deals with issues of natural forces and archaeological investigations in the present times. Visible method, interest in the function and interaction between man and objects are central. Often he lets the manufacturing process become part of the finished work, leaving traces of the process in the object, as a memory of its making.

He has had a number of exhibitions in Sweden as well as abroad and is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, the Malmö Art Museum, ASU Art Museum in the US and the Ceramics Museum in Vallauris, France. He has created a a series of brass knobs and a glass collection exclusively for Svenskt Tenn.
