featured and proud!

It's arrived! Wonderful surprise in the mailbox last Friday - The New Artisans, by Olivier Dupon (Dossier37). More than 70 artists/artisans/designers are featured, and I'm one of them!

Below are a couple of spreads - it was so hard to choose, all are gorgeous - to give a hint of what the rest of the book looks like. It's full of inspiring images (850 of them!). I can hardly put it down :)

(my copy was quite roughly beaten up by the postal service - hence the dented corners...)

see through red edge

I've finally created a link list to other paper artists. Each one is truly amazing, check some of them out. Endless creativity and inspiration.

I need to make a correction on my previous post: this coming weekend is not the last chance to see my exhibition - it runs until the 25th of September!

In October there will be a chance to see my paper art in Göteborg at the paper shop Rum för Papper. Details about that later on :)

Just one thin layer of paper.

Colored red edges.

More photos from my exhibition at Österbybruk. This coming weekend is the last chance to see it - hurry hurry :)

Heart of darkness

In search of lost time

Dream interpretation

Size: 60 cm ø (23.6 inches)
The titles are from books I have read, at least the first two). But the paper comes from other books.

koloni closeups

Koloni is the name of the 21 paper bowls in my show. I haven't given them individual names since they are part of a larger piece.

This one is made of book pages that have aged beautifully. The paper has turned brown in the edges and brittle.

I let coffee stain the rim of this bowl.

sadelmakarlängan art show opening

Pics from Saturdays art show opening at Sadelmakarlängan in Österbybruk.
Ulf Johnsson stone sculpture and myself paper objects. Beautiful day, beautiful setting!

Even though our work methods and materials are very far from each other, the pieces communicated well together, and so did we. Ulfs work is quite unique, his bowls of stone are extremely thin. In their smooth surface lay many hours of grinding and polishing. My photos don't do them justice, but give you a hint I hope.

The show is on until September 28. Open Wed-Fri 12 am-6 pm and Sat-Sun 10 am-4 pm. Welcome!
