Ref: AGB01

Swedish metal worker Malin Applegren was taught by her grandfather, Karl-Erik Torssel, at his elbow, learning everything he knew. The Royal Sconce for instance, The Swedish king Gustav V bought the first two her grandfather made. They were a wedding gift to Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden and Sibylla, in the early nineteen-thirties.

Now relying on instinct and generations of experience, the question Malin applies to her work again and again is: Is it simple? Will it last? Will it work?
“If you hold something I’ve made in your hand, you must sense the time that’s gone into it. When I sit down at the stock with a piece of metal in front of me, time passes but slowly. The ‘now’ solely consists of focused attention. From here time stretches back, so I can find my place in this tradition. And ahead, towards forms yet not conceived.”
“Brass is hard and obstinate, pewter’s responsive and yielding. Brass needs to be polished, while pewter just grows prettier with time.”

“Craftsmanship is all about this. About time.” - Malin Appelgren
Care instructions: It is important to know how the products should be managed. Brass is polished with common cleaning products, whereas pewter just ages and gets its natural charm over time. You can always rinse the products with soapy luke warm water to remove soot or old wax.
