Helgi Joensen is an artist resident in Stavanger, Norway. He was born in the Faroe Islands, but moved to Norway as a twelve-year-old. He works in tin and glass, and his motifs are inspired by Norwegian nature and culture. Among his works is a series of plates in pewter tin with beautiful motifs inspired by the North Sea people and nature.
Kaare Espolin Johnson (1907-1994) was a Norwegian artist and illustrator. He is known for his black and white motifs of Norwegian fishermen and fishing villages along the Norwegian coast. He used a special scratch style when drawing, which gave his motives their special appearance. The style was developed by him personally, because of his bad eye sight and the style was arranged thereafter. Kaare Espolin Johnson has illustrated many plates, including the tin plates in collaboration with Helgi Joensen.
