Lagom (law-gum) Studio Pottery, located in the lovely village of Hillsdale, Ontario, where a long tradition of pottery making happens to have happened in the very building I am now creating in!
Lagom translates to “just right”, a Swedish approach to living, and the inspiration for this studio.
My Grandmother was fiercely proud of her Swedish heritage. IKEA was always praised as the smartest furniture solution and ABBA was king. Beyond innovative small-space design solutions and pop stardom infamy, my Scandinavian ancestors had more than a few things “just right” about living a meaningful, content life.
I can think of nothing else so important in our modern era than to cherish our time. To connect more in person and to learn new skills. To take care of our environment and ourselves. To slow down and embrace mindfulness so we can cope better with our hectic lives and our troubled world. To stop each day for a coffee and pastry and simply take a break, breathe, notice, process and appreciate life as it goes by.
I invite you to take a look through my handcrafted, one-of-a-kind, small batch pottery created in the spirit of Lagom and made with love. Take a moment to pop by my Studio Store onsite at 3 Albert St. W., Hillsdale where I have a selection of ready-to-go pottery available. New to my online store I will release collections of my pottery a few times through the year. Launch dates will be announced here and on social media. Sign up for my newsletter to be notified first! It’s just me making this pottery; I believe in the importance of quality, durable work that looks great, so I commit to taking the time it takes to make unique and lovely pieces just for you.
