The paper intends to expand and deepen the field of craft; underline it and dissolve it and thereby demand new points of reference to work from; and doing so through the practices of crafts. Craft is traditionally closely linked with what we could define as a well-established concept; within a so-called Swedish identity. I will highlight different ‚Äúpottering‚ÄĚ works and should be seen as a variety of crackdowns; both historic and contemporary; where the object is to highlight the most relevant dominion in the crafts discourse. The paper also discusses knowledge of bodily work; the handicrafts of a fruit-carving artist and the handson-method of crossing concept: konsthantverk. From this a micro cosmos is reflected; these heterotopes represent and resonate; ‚Äúare‚ÄĚ; in this sense; antagonistic practices. We are dealing with power relations; bodily work; plastic flowers; watermelons; values; intra-activity; with the authentic - as well as with the technicalities of cutting the flesh out of a watermelon.
