Lucy Tokheim, 2008 oil on canvas 


I have worked with my husband Gene in Tokheim Stoneware's studio since he began it in 1973. Gene is the potter. I contribute design experience.

Our collaborative ceramic work is in the permanent collection of the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum and has been included in regional and international exhibitions. You can see more about that on the About Us page of our website:

Things got a lot more interesting after I became seriously interested in Norwegian-Folk Art, as this online exhibit illustrates. Its strength and beauty inspired my development as a designer. I enjoy the challenge of coming up with new work in this tradition as well as the audience of others who love Scandinavian design in all its forms.

Design thinking is important in every kind of activity.  Creating spaces that foster my own and other people's creativity has been at the heart of all my work. I welcome your comments.
