It’s fascinating how a cup on a saucer or a colour-coordinated linen napkin can transform something ordinary into a ceremonial moment. For Estrid Ericson it was a way of expressing herself artistically and an opportunity to gather together her collection of objects, textiles and colours into imaginative compositions. The dinnerware set was created with one of her poetically laid tables in mind.

The Gryning (Dawn) dinnerware has been created for the first meal of the day: a plate, a bowl and a cup and saucer – meant for both coffee and tea.

The transparency of the white clay is enhanced by the relief. The tactile, wavy surface is a reminder that each detail has been designed and produced by hand.

Sara Söderberg is an artist and designer. She lives and works in Stockholm and Gustavsberg and graduated from Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design in 2017.

Today she explores human movement and relationships through sculpture, ceramics and site-specific works. She is interested in the inherent history that different materials, spaces and objects contain and how different layers of value can be shaped to influence how we perceive and are affected by the world around us.
