Burkmakaren (The jar maker) is a portrait of my relationship with the jar and the process of making it.

For the past three years, the jar has been a crucial starting point in my creative pricess. However, it was not until now that I asked myself why that is.

The work is based on the self-examination made during the period when I sought the answer to my strong connection to the jar with the help of film as a new medium and therefore the external investigator.

The jar is the safe room and therefore the reason I willingly go through the exposure that comes with a self-analyzing process.
