So I am going for this faire and I can’t wait. I am so exited to show some of the new stuff I have been working on. So the car is almost packed, and only a few minor things like price tags, shelves etc, then I am good to go. Mostly I look forward to […]
Glaze course by Tine Secher day 2
So the second day of the course finally arrived and I was very excited to see the results of the last course’s many tests. We worked with everything from stains (blue) to Tinoxide, Magnesium, Siliciumcarbid, Rutil to strotiumcarbonate (don’t know the english words for them), but they are all very determining for the outcome of […]
Glaze course by Tine Secher day 1
This weekend was a big thing for me – I was attending an advanced glazing course downtown Copenhagen at Keramikskolen with instructor Tine Seier. I have worked with glazing before and find it very confusing and somewhat technically challenging and I wanted to improve my skills so that I can start making my own glazes […]
How to get google to see you
I have been in IT for more than 20 years now and I am not in any way an expert on webshops, online presence and all the SoMe lingo – BUT let me just give you a brief overview of all the things you need to consider if you want success online and google is […]
It’s saturday, It’s 5 AM and I can’t sleep
Normally, waking up at 5 in the morning on a saturday, would be annoying and leaving me feeling stressed out or worried – nut no today, not at this time in my life. I can’t sleep because I’m exited – and my head is exploding with ideas and I just have to get it out […]
Internship coming up!
Normally I work a 8-16 job in IT – it’s fast, brutal and stressful but I love it. But it does not leave me with much creativity in the old fashioned sense – creating things that are not on a computer – if you know what I mean? 🙂 Therefore I took the unheard step […]
Slip casting course day 2
Oh my.. day two arrived and went so fast. The day began with getting the pieces out of the kiln, and then making sure they are ready for glazing. The color choices are many and I decided to keep the color palette neutral in white, grey colors The glaze is added to the pieces by […]
candle making – it just makes sense!
Making candles to go with all the jesmonite design pieces is just a match made in heaving right? So I ventured into the world of candle making. Here are my comments after 2 months of testing. The Mix Making candles is sooo soothing and one should think that its just about getting some paraffin or […]
Prepping for the autumn fairs/markets
I am in full swing prepping for the different markets and fairs that are coming up in the fall here in DK and I can’t seem to find time enough in the 24 hours we have per day, to get it all done. I am at the moment creating candles to go with the different […]

So I finally got to a point, where all the stuff is coming together, and where shop, marketing, packaging, shipping and creating the items is in place, and it is really satisfying to start shipping items to their new homes <3 I have way too little time and way too many ideas to fit into […]
New Partnership with RUNT design
This week I have made a partnership with Stina from RUNT design, and I am so happy to be working with her. She has a passion for sustainability and like me, she does not like to waste anything if we dont have to. She is breeds rabbits and uses the very eco-friendly meat to cook, […]
New molds – Huge vases oh my gosh!

How to be sustainable?
I spend a lot of time considering and researching how I can help prevent my little business from contributing to pollution, de-forestation and climate change. It does not always add up, but I do my best to try and be responsible. First of all my materials are eco-friendly when available. Jesmonite is a waterbase compound […]
Not enough time in a day
Oh my, time just flies when you have a million things to do. This week I have been working on new designs both in the jesmonite workshop and in my sewing studio and I just love the process of creating. I attended a course to figure out my new coverlock machine which is both a […]
Building a webshop – oh my
So of course a webshop is needed to get all these beautiful items out to now loving homes, but I swear that there is nothing simple about the process of building one. Of couse one can use a shopify or Etsy webshop – pre build and everything, but where is the fun in that, and […]
