Christin Johansson says about her work:

"I work with ceramic form rather than function. A distinct wish for a specific expression is the driving force of my works. My objects communicate impressions and observations from my former profession as a nurse. They appear clinical and sterile with strong references to industrial and functionalistic properties.
The objects challenge man’s need to place things that are not immediately recognisable in known frames of reference. This need to interpret and understand the world we live in fascinates me and plays an important role in my works. By applying a few reference points such as colour and surface, I force the audience to mentally place the objects in intended environments. Consequently, all my objects emerge from and describe the same universe, which constitutes my work sphere. This universe provides me with an inexhaustible source of inspiration and creates a strong relation between the objects – and makes up my artistic expression."
