If it's important it will require courage. My journey to gain enough courage to start my own design business has taken time. I started with evening classes, apprenticeships and training, both in Luleå and at the Carl Malmsten School Capellagården in Öland. Dreams were made and plans were many. But I still didn't dare to make the leap. Courage takes time to build. Instead I continued to study, this time at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm to be a dental technician. I worked as one for a few years. But something was missing. After much thinking I found the courage needed. I resigned. It's so nice to finally make the leap. To put my plans into action and get going. All-in! My name is Tina Häggström, ceramics artist and designer. I'm TinaKatarinaH. My ceramics has a clean design with a lot of feeling. And some surprises. Everything is not as we think it is. There are usually a little more. Hidden.
I also work in other materials and retro building glass lamps. Color, shape, love and a big scoop of courage. That's life. That's TinaKatarinaH.
