Oknytt Ceramics are sculptural and functional pieces inspired by Scandinavian nature and London life. Hanna’s ceramic practice explores the enchanted natural world in clay, and also probes the way in which our natal landscape is imbued with emotions and fleeting memories. Echoes of the gnarly branches, moss covered boulders and bottomless bogs of the southern Swedish woodlands can be distinguished in her pieces, and often these traces are paired with glimmers of urban wilderness found in decaying London surfaces, structures and spaces.

Hanna’s work is high fired stoneware produced using a range of techniques such as coiling, slab construction and various carving methods.
