new passion

I rediscovered papier maché!
I'm working on an idea for an exhibition this coming fall. More will follow.

back in one piece

My trip to Gothenburg went fine - the train was delayed both ways, but the workshop wasn't affected. And I'm back in one piece, so everythings fine.

Now I just have to repack my bags - going to Stavanger in Norway for a lecture and a two-day workshop next week.

re-use fun

Barbro Fagerlind is our exhibitor in the Kaleido gallery this month. She works in metal such as tin cans etc. Last week she held two workshops - they were fully booked immediately. I was lucky to be one of the participants and had a ball; cutting, hammering, punching away at my tin cans I had brought along. Couldn't finish it off there though, time went so fast.

I'm off to Göteborg to hold a bookbinding workshop at HDK (School of Design and Crafts) tomorrow. The train traffic situation is chaotic because of all the snow that has fallen in the past days. It's usually a 4 hour train ride, but people have been stuck for hours in the middle of nowhere because of snow blocking or rails freezing. Hope I get there - and hope I get back home after the workshop tomorrow evening...

Barbro's wonderful creations.

And my unfinished attempt at a light bearer :) It was harder than I thought, but fun!

on and on and on

More of the "one-a-day"s.
I've started coloring some parts black. Always starting in the center and working my way out. There are endless variations to be made!
