karin eriksson podcast!


it's friday and time for another podcast. today i'm thrilled to be speaking with swedish design star, karin eriksson. karin is one of my personal favorites and is a huge, huge inspiration to a number of independent designers i know. her work is always simple, clean and innovative. so [click here] to hear karin's interview and more about her dream project that involves renovating a barn in sweden. and you can click here to see a slideshow of new photos of karin's work and click here to find links to the stores karin mentions in her interview. don't forget to sign up for the d*s newsletter if you want to hear karin's extended interview (the next issue goes out monday). [i'm out today covering brooklyn designs, so i'll be back soon with extensive coverage of the show! click here for some more d*s finds in the meantime]

I can never access the podcast. It loads and says done, but the page is empty. I'm a Swede and a huge fan of Karin, I really want to hear her interview. Can someone help me out?

Thank you! anna

I am such a big fan of Karin's stuff. I first discovered her through the Yellow House in Brighton.

I love the tea cup in the photograph you've chosen - the one with the green flower. Where can I get that?! I can't seem to find it in the links.

So lovely!

Thanks Grace!

Merci for the wonderful interview Grace. I understand Karin's dislike of plagiarism if she's talking about deliberate plagiarism but, I also believe that there exists no original thought...that we are all recording things, like design, in our subconciousness and reinterpreting them.

Great podcast, Grace. It is so cool to listen to a fellow potter talk about her inspiration, sources and techniques. I too, wondered about her concern about plagerism. Direct ripping off is a huge problem, but within the context of influence, evolution and inspiration, work will affect the "look" of other work, especially if it has strong resonance. I appreciate Sylvie for bring up this point.

hi everyone!
about plagiarism - i'm talking about the direct copying of products or the "too close for comfort" designs that - strangely enough - often large companies do. one would think knew better or could afford not to do it like that.

being influenced by something or someone - conciously or subconciously - is different. i'm a great believer in sharing and being generous with both ideas, work in progress and experiences.

;) karin
