Within the frame of our not so frequent series “Favourite things in my home”, I am showing this set of pewter objects from Svenskt Tenn (Swedish company which also produces the Josef Frank print textiles). A couple of years ago or so, Svenskt Tenn invited young designers to create new pewter shapes. Ceramist Eva Hild came up with these very tactile fantasy forms. Each piece was given to me by a member of my family with the purpose to be an object of beauty to brighten up my hotel room on my work related travels – which there were just too many of at that time. As I discovered, even small pieces of pewter are quite heavy to carry, so the objects stayed at home. But I just love the thoughtfulness and imagination behind the gift.
