As a child growing up in northern Norway, Ann Kristin considered the awe-inspiring nature surrounding her native Narvik to be her playground. Today, she continues to ‘play’ in nature, transforming her childhood fascination with natural materials into cutting-edge, contemporary designs. With a background in woodworking and a post-graduate degree in ceramics, Ann Kristin is a master of handcrafted forms.
She currently explores new potentials for classic materials, such as stoneware, to create sculptures, installations and multifunctional products. For Northern’s first launch, Ann Kristin’s two-tone terracotta planter series named Oasis, was added to our accessories range. A designer who truly appreciates the beauty of the natural world, Ann Kristin’s planters bring nature indoors for others to enjoy.
