Charlotta is an artist friend of mine who makes beautiful pottery, sheepskin vests/coats amongst other things. She is extremely talented and I consider it an honour to give her a little boost on my blog. She is not ”very famous” yet, but I’m sure fame is lurking just around the corner 🙂 Please, PLEASE check out her pretty web site (and store..): Handmade by Charlotta Unger.
Charlotta has her workshop on Österlen, the very southeastern part of Sweden. It’s a beautiful and serene place which gives her all the energy and creativity she needs to be a successful designer and artist.
Such gorgeous ceramics, I can assure you the cups are a dream to drink out of. A cup of morning coffee like that really makes your day 🙂
I adore the gold on white. It makes the bowls/cups look like they’ve been dug up at some ancient Roman site. Especially with the signet on the side.
But all’s not table wear. Charlotta even makes her own prints on table cloths and other materials such as…
Sheep skin is one of her favourite materials, here is a lovely wristlets for cooold Swedish days. Will sure keep arthritis at bay.
And now for the jewel in the crown. The ornate sheep skin vests is a dream! I can assure you it’ll keep you warm even in the frostiest of northern winter days. AND it is so pretty with the trimming. Mind you, Charlotta makes every little piece herself so the stock isn’t bulging with products – hurry hurry and you might be one of the lucky ones!
Being an extremely creative woman she makes sculptures as well as….
Pimp up them rubber boots, keep your knees warm on chilly autumn days.
Charlotta hard at work.
Now, today is Midsummer which is a big deal in Sweden (due to a ridiculously short summer). Many foreigners think it’s our independence day…..it’s not…and this is the way most people celebrate it. Not me and my love though. We shall spend the day and evening all by ourselves and instead of the traditional sill & snaps (herring & booze) we shall eat our homemade hamburgers. Yum! AND we will stay sober, something most Swedes won’t…Cheeriooooo
