Katrina Johnson is a Brisbane based artist who is known for her inherent creative talents. As a natural ‘maker’, she is inspired by traditional craft forms that tell of old customs and ancient practices. Drawn to the time honored tradition of himmeli, she has become an enthusiastic creator of the slow, meditative craft. Himmeli means sky or heaven and is believed to bring luck and prosperity to your home.
Katrina’s aim is to present an evolving product range that celebrates quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. Himmeli aligns perfectly with this ethos. ‘It’s so special to keep an old craft alive. I enjoy making things that take time, patience and thought. Himmeli is a craft that reflects the delicacy, perfection and repetition in nature, and I love it!’ says Katrina.
