Christina Andreasson


About me

It was an instant love affair and it still is. I wanted to pick up a creative force that engages me during the dark Swedish winter nights. Maybe it was an easy transition; moving my hands out of the late fall gardening grounds into tactile clay!
End of class and some hours later I realized that I had created my first sculpture! That is how my sculptor journey began 10 years ago! On top of all energizing creativity; working in clay empowers me in many aspects. It gives me a tremendous intuitive and meditative sense of power. It is, as well an ongoing continuation of healing power.

My name is Christina “Kicki” Andreasson, I am Swedish, living in Washington D.C., USA.

I am a contemporary figurative sculptor moving between classic sculpting and creative ceramics. All my sculptures are unique and one of a kind. Besides clay I work in a variety of mediums such as stone, wood and plaster.

My approach when sculpting emanates out of an idea or vision of what I want to achieve. It can either be the challenge of capturing the human form through observing a live model or interpreting an architectural object into a human form.

As my work process moves along, my curiosity guides me further into different perspectives and my interpretation often turns into something that I did not perceive initially. I think it shows my way of being pragmatic by all means in life. I always bear in mind that there is always a good solution around the corner.

Early on, I decided to build my sculptor knowledge upon taking independent classes with highly skilled and inspirational teachers. I have been attending workshops and classes in Brussels, Folkuniversitet in Stockholm, Washington Studio School – D.C., Art League School in Alexandria – Virginia and Penland School of Arts -North Carolina.



I hand build each sculpture carefully. Depending of my idea and vision, I choose earthenware, stoneware or porcelain clay to underscore their individual expressions.

My surface palette is a combination of slips, engobes, terra sigillata, mason stains, underglazes, oxides, cold washes (ink, acrylics etc.) and sometimes various commercial glazes. I work in multiple layers and when I reach the point of connection; mostly the eyes, in combination with a distinguished colour palette, I let it go! It has a life by its own. I finally fire her 1-2 times depending on what she tells me to do.  Before final take-off I highlight her appearance with different pigmented waxes and oils.


My lovely family and dear friends with great minds. Nature and being close to water especially being by the ocean and the wild nature of buckthorns at my abode in Sweden.
