Introducing Alexandra Nilasdotter, a student at The Royal Danish Academy Of Fine Art | Ceramics on Bornholm. Nilasdotter as been a creative person for her whole life and created a ceramics collection with her love for working with her hands. Shaping a material has always been a big fascination.
In the summer of 2015 Nilasdotter started her own ceramics studio in the small city of Hässleholm south of Sweden. Studio NILASDOTTER is like a tiny factory with a potter's wheel, oven and space for production.
Nilasdotter constantly wants to learn new things and move forward with the drive from her curiosity and will to achieve her goals. She finds her drive in the technical and artistic challenges, the clays sensitivity and strength, to strain the limits of what you can do and get to know different clays and materials.
Nilasdotter's inspirations are gathered from Scandinavian and Japanese design, nature, but also architecture. It is of most importance that the materials and lines in my objects are close to earth and that the shapes are determined in their expression.
The simplicity, the minimalism and purity is of most importance, the raw texture of the clays surface and the softness of the glaze. She recycles all the clay and tries to work with pure materials with less toxins and lower environmental impact. To make things of high quality that will last long, both in terms of durability and trends.
