Thunell, Johan

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 towards sculptural work; renderings of beast and man in stoneware and raku.

Quite recently my interest has come to focus on human physiognomy.

A result of this interest in the human face was my installation “A Thousand Heads”, one thousand raku fired faces, that I´ve shown throughout Scandinavia.

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.
