Kristine Bjaadal and Immer

Sep 30, 2016Linn Ellevseth

Kristine Bjaadal focuses on how, through her design of everyday objects, she can turn everyday routines into valued rituals. Her approach to design has a poetic touch, where the use of materials and design together give associations to sculpture as well as to the area of ​​use for which the objects are intended. Bjaadal works in the intersection between product design and handicrafts, and in 2016 was awarded the state's artist grant.

MA in design, Oslo Academy of the Arts.

Born 1980


IMMER - Immer is a series of small bowls and dishes in stoneware and porcelain.

The bowls can be used for most things; serving small dishes, snacks, sweets, sugar cubes and flaked salt. They can also be used for storing small items elsewhere in the house; on the desk, bathroom and hallway table - or as pot hides for small succulents. The dishes are used as small plates/dishes, pot bases or as podiums for vases and decorative items.

The porcelain is liquid and cast in plaster moulds. Stoneware clay is plastic and is hand-pressed into the same molds. Two different materials, with two completely different techniques - yet all the bowls are produced in the same plaster moulds. The barrels are rolled out of stoneware and the top is polished after firing, which gives the special contrast between rough and smooth clay.
