Tide – Tide is a series of jugs/vases made of white and colored porcelain. The different colors are created by adding different sulphates and the coloring process gives each vase an individual touch. Seland is inspired by nature, and works with minimalist aesthetics and functionality.

Tuthanka - The Tuthanka series is made in white and colored porcelain. The production method is casting and the coloring takes place by adding oxides. The series is inspired by shapes Seland has in his workshop – funnels and oil jugs, and gives clear industrial associations. The jug is cast in three parts – jug, spout and handle, which are put together after casting. The products' surfaces play on the contrasts between glossy and matt. The lids for the jugs are currently at the sketch idea/stage.
