The Wax Cookbook

BY KARIN SANDIN
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Karin Sandin is a graduate of Malmstens. Rather than focus on a piece of furniture as her final project, she investigated furniture wax; making a cookbook for those keen to make their own wax at home from everyday ingredients. Her work takes the form of a beautifully illustrated 'cookbook' illustrating not only the processes involved in this humble substance but displaying the ingredients in a series of attractive tableaus. (in Swedish)

Nattbarn

BY HANNAH GUSTAVSSON
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Hannah Gustavsson is a young illustrator and graphic novelist who presents her degree project from the Konstfack school of arts and design. In her soft-spoken, emotionally loaded presentation she speaks of her central character; one who faces teenage problems of sexuality, fitting in, school, identity, family life and social classes. Undisputed in her talent as an artist, what surprised everyone was the intellect of the narrative of Nattbarn (Night Child), a story to which we can all relate to some degree. (in Swedish)

Her projects have entailed a fair degree of traveling, which serves as a way of lifitng inspiration for her work. Each trip taken would result in a plethora of found objects that would later see themselves incorporated into her final project; a glorious investment of time to create a stunning piece of craftsmanship - her desk.

Brewing Koltur

BY DANIEL NORLINDH AND PETER LINCOLN
@ VOL 40 ON JUN 13, 2013

Daniel Norlindh & Peter Lincoln of Brewing Koltur give us some insight into the growing craft-brewing scene here in Sweden and beyond. These two charismatic characters ooze both knowledge and passion for the brewing of short run beers and ales. Sweden's craft brewing scene is a vibrant new addition to a land dominated by a state-run alcohol system that sees Swedes governed by a restrictive 'home drinking' situation. Brewing Koltur will leave you with an appetite to go out and try different ales and treat them with a higher level of respect.
