Merry Paraphrase and Happy New Plagiarism!

That's the title of our Christmas exhibition at Kaleido Konsthantverk.

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...
