Month in The Åland Archipelago Guest Artist Residence Program in Island of Kökar, summer 2016

For many years Heidi had a dream about spending time and work in Archipelago. This dream came true in summer 2016. 

She found local clay from seashore and abandoned field. Pure red granite powder from roadwork site. Cycled and most importantly was free to make art on potter's wheel. 

"I can think clearly while I work on potter's wheel. Sometimes the best ideas comes while I am working something else"

"When I close my eyes I can still see the sea and feel the sun. Wonderful memories of Island of Kökar"
