I think we are all affected by the horrific images and stories shared from the war in Ukraine, and it is easy to feel powerless. That's why I've joined the #100vaseproject, as a way to be able to contribute in my own small way.
In the spring of 2022, I will throw 100 vases for the benefit of the aid work for Ukraine. All vases will be different, but the common denominator is that they are all turned from 450 grams of clay. There will be different shapes, different clays, different glazes, and they are numbered based on the order they were thrown.
All vases will cost SEK 500, and 50% of that amount will be donated UNHCR , Red Cross and Unicef in support of the fantastic and important work they are doing in Ukraine (and also in all other crisis areas).
The inspiration for the project comes from the British ceramist Kara Leigh Ford , who started her project in early March 2022.
I'll add the vases as they become ready, and donate money on an ongoing basis. Feel free to follow me on Instagram so you don't miss when I stock up on new vases.
