About Erika…

I have always found how things are put together totally fascinating; I delight in patterns…
those found in nature, with their perfect balance of form and purpose; the pattern of stories which we weave and the history that we leave behind as we interact during our lives and across time; maps and charts and the different ways in which abstract information is represented visually… the world is such an endless source of delight and interest.

I grew up in Norway where the strikingly beautiful shapes and decoration of Viking longships woke me up to the power of design, the craft and artistry of early civilisations. What I’d seen stayed with me when we came to Ireland, where I saw the wonderful collection we have here of early gold treasures.
I was hooked!

I now live in the west of Ireland, away from city life. I have exhibited internationally, both in Europe and the USA, including representing Ireland at SOFA, Chicago and at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. After many years of designing and making collections for shops and galleries, these days I mainly work to commission, particularly enjoying to make pieces connecting directly to the client’s own experiences.

I am interested in the hidden meaning behind objects, and the relationship implicit between them and people. I like to incorporate symbolism in much of my work and the balance of form and content, both in design and meaning, is important to me.
