A huge warm thank you hug to my friend and colleague Ebba Stålhandske - without who's help I couldn't have made it there in time, hang the exhibition, arrange everything and speed back home – all in one day. You're the best!

summer at Stora Kornö

 
Asta is not a natural swimmer, but we lured her in by throwing sticks in the water - she simply couldn't resist that :)

This years vacation in our summer cottage at Stora Kornö, small island on the West Coast. Looks like we had fabulous weather and not a drop of rain - which is almost true.

Mattias brought along loads of work. I brought along working material for my upcoming exhibition this fall. Working out there is simpler, without all technical devices and the duties of everyday life at home. We both get a lot done. But we did manage to get some sun too.



Modern life... we draw the line at phones - so no TV-set, no laptop (except for sending Mattias' work files).


H2O exhibition

Pia Ulfendahl, porcelain
Lena Junell Opgenoorth, felted wool
Josefin Friberg, porcelain
Elisabet Berg, re-used tin cans
Annica Danielsson Almén, concrete
Saturday the 18th of August is the last chance to see the beautiful exhibition H2O at Kaleido Konsthantverk in Uppsala. Don't miss it! This is just a small selection of my favourite pieces...

Artipelag outing



 On Mattias birthday we went on a boatride to Artipelag - the beautiful art museum in the Stockholm Archipelago. Two amazing exhibitions: One, Two, Tree! about new Swedish wood design and the wonderful art of William Wegman; Hello Nature. We had a wonderful day.
 

pretty as a picture - the view through a museum window...

William Wegmans work - I just love it! Makes me happy.
