Using young, imaginary, and sweet-looking figures in an effort to explore fantasy, juvenile dissent, and nihilism, Simonsson's work is unlike no other in contemporary art pottery. His "Moss People" series features characters such as this boy carrying a backpack. This example, as for many other ones, is covered in a monochromatic green coating, which resembles moss.
