Welcome!

My name is Sheila Seger. I create small batch, hand-built and wheel thrown ceramics in my studio in Viviken between Kristinehamn and Karlskoga.

LakeStudio

Surrounded by forests and perched on a rock overlooking lake Alkvettern, I am inspired by nature to create functional, one of a kind, organic pieces of ceramic art. My work embodies the movement and depth I see in the nature around me.

About me

I was educated and had a career as an Urban Planner in my native Canada before pursuing my fascination with clay. After many years of ceramics classes while living in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and now here in Sweden, I feel fortunate to have been able to open my own studio in Värmland in 2020.

By pursuing my passion for clay I create beautiful timeless ceramics, inspired by nature, that can be enjoyed every day.

Coming Events

No more planned for 2023. See all of you next year!

Larsmäss i Järnboås

On August 12-13, I took part in the craft market Larsmäss in Järnboås. This was the year with record rainfalls. In fact it rained so much that the main road from Örebro got closed down. As a result, the turnout was definitely lower than expected. Despite this I sold record number of my larger bowls and porcelain items. It was also great fun to meet five other ceramists and exchange ideas and experiences. I definitely plan to be back next year. Hopefully not having to wear my Wellies the whole time though!

Bjurtjärn's Village Days

On July 1st, I was back to the Bjurtjärns Bygdedagarna at Bjurtjärns hembygdsgård. This year the weather was far better, but I think there were fewer visitors. Despite this, I sold almost as many pieces this year as last year. Both to new friends and old acquaintances. Bjurtjärn's Village Days is definitely a tradition I will continue!

Väsemârten

On May 18th, I participated in the Väse Marknad and sold my ceramics. A nice sunny day, although still cold, with a very good turnout meant that I almost sold out of my small houses. It appears they became the (Swedish) Mothers' Day present of 2023.

Karlskoga Spring Market

On May 6th, 2023, I had my tent up selling my latest collection of ceramics at Karlskoga Marknad in downtown Karlskoga. Very nice sunshine, but bitterly cold. However, despite this, I almost sold out of my blue-and-white bowl collection!

2022

On Sep. 24-25, 2022 I had a booth at Smaka på Värmland in Kristinehamns Stadspark. Thanks to the organizers of this huge event and to everyone who came out and bought my pottery. I look forward to be part of this event next year.

On July 2, 2022 I had my first ceramics sale at the Bjurtjärns Bygdedagarna which took place at Bjurtjärns hembygdsgård. Thanks to everyone who came out and bought my pottery. It was wonderful to meet you all. Given the very positive experience (despite the windy conditions!), I hope to be back there next year.

Where to Purchase

A selection of my ceramics are available to purchase at the Kristinehamn's Tourist Center and at Ölme Prästgård & Gästgiveri.
