Frida Fjellman , a young Swedish visual artist , presents its glass and ceramic volcanoes
She represents the new generation of Scandinavian designers. Wearing decorative arts and crafts at the limits of sculpture, radically revisiting the Nordic fundamentals, it transforms in a wand an environment that is too chilly.
From the glass, she retains " torching ", little used in Sweden, and the mirror to its reflectivity .
It also uses neon lights, it turns into lightning , bright borders of his dream.

Difficult to classify , this artistic design is called "Contemporary Nordic Craft" . To understand this term , do not translate literally craft by trade, in reference to a multitude of skills and many types of objects ... in Swedish, different terms are used: Konsthantverk , which means work that aspires to be like the art, and also Hantverk , which refers to a craft hobby. In 2007, a new name has emerged: Formhantverk or " sub an artisanal form." The term was coined to refer to " activities that are on the border between craft and design and dialogue between these disciplines , with an emphasis on communication and discussion of issues."
