Studying at Anders Beckmans School of Design, Sweden, Agneta then attended San Francisco Art Institute, USA and Academie La Grande Chaumier, France in order to hone her iconic and unforgettable style. Today, she echoes her cosmopolitan studies with her work which is featured in museums and exhibitions worldwide.
Whether crafting a piece destined for display or daily use, Agneta puts the utmost effort into perfecting her art. When she launched her stoneware line Agneta Livijn AB in 1995, she fully devoted herself to producing beautiful and functional pieces for the home—with a focus on kitchenware. Today, her line provides customers with all their dining essentials, from cafe latte cups with saucers to milk bottles, plates, and more—all hand-produced and hand-painted. Yet Agneta’s products are optimally functional and are both dishwasher and microwave-safe. The “Get Hip, Get Handmade” line is even oven-safe.
In addition to her own studio’s production, Agneta also designs exclusive merchandise lines that can be found in shops across Europe, Japan, and the USA at IKEA, Habitat, and R.O.O.M. By the Torekov meadows where the ocean meets land Agneta Livijn created La Casa del Mare, a modern house inspired by the sun kissed French Riviera. Agneta got a flashback from when she was growing up as a child by the Mediterranean Sea and fell in love with the new untouched land in Torekov as the warm wind stroked her cheek. The building is an art-project which in its simplicity melts into the empty meadow and is also a milestone in her artistic life. Here, Agneta has collected the essence of her life. A studio where her creations in ceramics, paintings, and now, latest her garden-pottery are for show. The house is extremely easy meat and contains an art studio which doesn’t disturb the living areas.
La Casa del Mare is a quintessential meeting point for family and friends, with its big garden and pergola for late dinners. The plot also has a small wooden house for storage, “Le Cabanon” and a home for the children, appropriately named Mont Solei. The architecture reminds you of a house near the Mediterranean with its white-washed stone. It’s well build to resist the summer- and winter winds which can be produced by nature in Bjäre County. It has an open floor-plan with an interior that is a good combination with the Italian stone-floor and kitchen. The children´s house Mont Solei is like an Italian dream with tiled floor and white walls. The house is a place for Agneta Livijn to reflect on life and create new art, with her studio that invites you for viewing.
