To give a kidney or to receive a kidney from another human being is something that both giver and receiver bear with them forever. To give life and to be given life.
I chose the name YOU & ME as a celebration to life! The great gift of life, to care for one another is what it's all about.
In designing the two glass kidneys I was inspired by the natural shape and size of the human kidney. If you are giving or if you have been given a glass kidney you can place your own words, name or images under the clear glass, as a memory, or as a symbol.
When I designed both the glass kidneys and the Silver jewellery it was important to make choices that meant I could be close to the production process, to the materials and to the craftsmanship. The hand-molded glass is made by Skrufs Glassworks in Småland, Sweden. The Silver jewellery is made in Sweden
