Biography

Annette Johnnerfelt has always had a passion for creating sculptures. She graduated with a bachelor degree in social science and worked in the financial sector.

When the family moved to USA she joined ceramic classes at Fireborn Studios in Pittsburgh, PA, and when they continued to Japan she studied ceramic art at Yamate Tougei in Tokyo.

Description of the work

The structure has natural differences and hand build evidences are preserved in the dark stoneware. The material is fired for a very long time and covered with transparent glass. During her years in Japan she experienced her mentor’s sense of the material and his facilities unaffected by Western thinking. Today her work expresses an exciting balance between Japanese traditions and Western-mindset.

Artist statement

The sculptures capture a moment between two persons. Annette tries to bring a reflection and recognition about social networking. Social networking creates a connection between people, but the body language is missing which means a big part of every human’s daily life experience. Body language is so much more than words. It is to understand the communication by interpret eye contact, tone of voice, movements and touching. By self-fill the empty spaces, catch the flow of emotions and feel the power the viewer creates the role of human relationships in his or her own life.
