Intro
I am an art jewellery maker, with my studio in Trollhättan, Sweden. I earned my masters degree in art jewellery at the School of Craft and Design in Gothenburg (HDK).

Statement

In Sweden craft is taught in primary school. Usually the very first thing you make is a wooden butter knife. I use this as starting point in my work thinking about what it does to me, being able to make a butter knife. Carving in to the core of the shapes and the movements of my hands are in my work and my everyday life.


My work is inspired by the everyday and the ordinary.
I try to find the point of intersection between the familiar and the extraordinary. Like when you say your name over and over again it starts to sound strange. I listen to the objects of the everyday until they reveal their magic. Jewellery allows me to materialize this dicotomy. I want to make everyday matter. I have a manifesto on material use where I declare my materials to be the ones surrounding me. I try not to buy any materials but to have them given to me, harve­sted, found or stolen. For inspiration I walk.


Elin Flognman celebrates the humble potato in Everyday Matter, a surreal series featuring golden potatoes strung around the neck or clustered on the body as brooches - delightfully drawing attention to the politics of food, a celebration of the precious importance of this humble vegetable. / Kath Libbert, 2015
