bathing beauties

They look a lot like like old-fashioned bathing caps, don't they? I named them Million Dollar Mermaid (top) and Neptunes Daughter (bottom) as an hommage to Esther Williams movies with the same names - which I haven't seen unfortunately...

The paper used is from an old norwegian childrens book I bought during my stay in Stavanger when I held a workshop there in spring. It's very thick and beautifully discolored, my guess is that it had a high content of wood, but I'm not sure about this.


  1. These are beautiful bowls Cecilia.

  2. Åh, vilka fantastiskt vackra skålar du gör! Helt underbart! Synd att dina workshops är så långt bort … från mig alltså!

  3. Thank you for sharing
    This fabulous work with us
    See you

  4. This is great! I love that you've found a book beautiful enough to match the design.
