TUBE - Over several years, Bodil Mogstad Skipnes has made cups and small jugs/bowls in cylindrical shape. The series has been named TUBUS (Latin word for tube, e.g. on a microscope/binoculars).

For Volume 3 with the theme of sixteen, she has produced an extension of the TUBUS series in the form of bowls and dishes. These come in 3 groups which end up in 16 different variants, with some new colors to be included along with the black and red variants which have been mainly used so far in the series. The bowl sets are, as the pictures show, stackable.

Bodil makes the glazes herself from scratch and the products are hand-turned from French porcelain clay from Limoge in her workshop in Hamar.
