Anu Moser (born 1945) is a highly recognized Swedish ceramic artist and product innovator. She lives and works on the small Island of Donso outside Gothenburg, where ocean and sky become central natural elements of inspiration in her design. Her works have been presented around the world in a great number of exhibitions. The mixture of innovative function and the aesthetic features of simplicity, harmony, softness and yet strictness in form, are repetitive themes in her design.
During recent years Anu has focused her attention on the combination of lighting design and art. Among her famous and credited previous work is the Moser pendant designed for Louis Poulsen Lighting, Denmark in 2001/02.
"The creative process of arts and crafts has always played an essential role in my life. I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember, and I started with ceramics when I was 15. During recent years light design, optimal illumination and glass have become a great fascination for me to work with. The idea behind the Nova series has been to use advanced glass techniques of the finest quality glass to create a group of playful, beautiful and contemporary "flying light stars". The idea of the hanging solution came to me while working in the woods where I noticed a claw like tool used for grabbing timber. This inspired me to create this industrial looking detail of functional innovation from the same basic concept."
