Metal Worker / Sweden

Malin designs and crafts all her products in her workshop in Österlen in southern Sweden, using nothing but her hands, her craft, brass and pewter – and crucially, plenty of time. She learnt this handicraft from her grandfather, Karl Erik Torssell, who taught her everything he knew.

She relies on instinct, and the experience she’s built up. When she sits down at the stock with a piece of metal in front of her, time passes but slowly. The ‘now’ solely consists of focused attention. From here time stretches back, so she can find her place in this tradition. And ahead, towards forms yet not conceived.

Her craftsmanship is all about this. About time and a heart-like rhythm of a beating hammer.
