In 2017 Christina graduated from the art academy with a digitally drawn animation film. Hours of screen work piled up and to get rid of her square eyes, Christina took an occasional break by kneading a pot of clay.
Imperfect pots - that wouldn't be judged by teachers. Jars that were allowed to be themselves. Wabisabi.
After a successful graduation period, Christina's fascination with clay took on a life of its own. Christina's graduation film was often not understood by people outside the art world, but strangely enough her hand-knitted cups, pots, bowls etc. were!
That's how Crooked Garden blossomed. An imaginary garden in which handmade creations come to life. Where the doors are always open and where curiosity is paramount.
With Crooked Garden, Christina also enjoys being active on instagram and uses this as the biggest bridge to get in touch with people who also need a day without a screen (in the form of ceramics workshops) or who need a unique item that can carry coffee or a tasty pie for them. And thus enrich their lives.
And now Christina NG is ambassador! Will you welcome her to our NG family as well?
