Vaengr Valholl Hjalmar

Designed objects

Ceramic, metal, fabric, gemstone, glaze, timber

Vaengr Valholl Hjalmar (Winged Helm of Valhalla) was designed and produced in an effort to emulate the craftsmanship of the now poorly-recognised yet highly sophisticated culture and craftsmanship of the ancient Northern Germanic pagan peoples. I delved into their myths, rituals and symbols to grant my work a degree of authenticity. I selected ceramics and metal-smithing as the same techniques and materials used today in these fields were once used for decorative human-scale items, just as my own work is. I allowed the design to change organically as new materials and ideas came to hand.
