Agnes Fries is a product designer specializing in high quality ceramics. Born in Sweden she now shares her time between studios in Stockholm and Jingdezhen, China – the world’s capital of porcelain.
By exploring the industry of applied arts Fries pursues her interest for combining production, collaboration and society with aesthetics and tactility. Her work sits between art, culture, and craft as a result — the designs straddle the classical and conceptual while never sacrificing their function.
As a response to European porcelain factories shutting down, Agnes is now launching Parallel Productions – a way of enabling independent craftsmen to make a living out of her designs.
