Members and invited guest artists have been inspired by an assortment of old objects from Upplandsmuseet, the county museum, responsible for the cultural history and archaeology of Uppsala county. There were mittens, candlesticks, wall hangings, trimmings and decorations etc, 100–200 years old. All of which we were free to use as inspiration to reinvent new pieces.
Here is a small selection of what we came up with.
|Elisabet Berg, trimmings made of beer cans|
|Lena Billingskogs massive wooden candle stick|
|Lina Holm, textile necklace (guest artist)|
|Lotta Hellström, ceramic|
|Lotta "Kraka" Persson, knitted fingerless gloves|
|Pernilla Sylvan (guest artist), candle sticks for birthday candles|
|Veronica Gardetoft, glass angels/schnapps glass when turned over :)|
|and my own paper mittens...|
