It’s physically demanding and sweaty. Grandma’s hands are gnarledfrom years of pain and hard work. Hands knead the dough. She works with rolling-pins, brushes and older baking utensils. She deftly places the bread on a peel and sets it in the stone oven. Grandpa takes care of the wood-burning , watches over it, blows life into it, again and again. He moves the bread around on the hot hearth. They work noiselessly.Close to each other.
Born 1967 in Storuman, Lapland. Lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.
