Johan Thunell
Lives and work in south of Sweden. Born 1946
I established my studio in the early seventies after my training at the Croydon College of Art,
London. In the early days, inspired of what I saw of work from Japan and England. I mainly
made domestic ware in stoneware and porcelain. In later years the emphasis has shifted
sculptural work; renderings of beast and man in stoneware and raku. Quite recently my
interest has come to focus on human physiognomy.
I´ve exhibited at museums and galleries in Scandinavia, the UK, Spain and the US.
Recently I´ve been a frequent exhibitor at international art fairs In Europe, the US and Asia.
