Memoriam Fika encapsulates a feeling of warmth and lush greenery experienced during a two month residency in the woodlands of Småland, Sweden. As autumn season approaches, the occasions to get together with friends and colleagues over ‘fika’ breaks to share food and company becomes a heartwarming ritual. The candle embodies the walks and cycles over hills and through woods, and passed candle lit windows.
