Swedish Material Makers
Is a group of artists that since 2010 have worked with international exhibitions and exchanges at a professional level within the contemporary Arts and Craft field.
Our experience is that craft is reinforced through personal encounters where a direct dialogue can develop around the terms and conditions of the craft profession. We are eight artists based in our various materials: ceramics, glass, textile and metal/jewelry. As a group we also represents different generations and educational backgrounds. This exhibition is their first connection with Iceland.
