two cups

My exhibition opened on Saturday and all went well, everything was ready on time and I am very satisfied with how it turned out. But I forgot to take photos..! I'll post some later on. Meanwhile I'm posting some close-ups of the cups. Enjoy.

I was quite stressed during the days before the show opened - Mattias being away in France for several days (enjoying the good life at Rendez vous Carnet de voyage conference in Clermont-Ferrand), leaving me to deal with all my preparations, two children with activities, a dog to walk and all those meals to cook (sometimes it feels as if you start right over with the next meal as soon as one meal is finished?)... ;)) He returned home yesterday - and now it's my turn to leave for a few days. It's time the yearly bookbinding workshop at Nyckelviksskolan. Byebye!

on the telly

I'm not - but my paperbowls were! These three made an appearance on the Go' kväll Lördag show (fast forward to 03.44) on Saturday Nov 5th. They were brought there by Frida Ramstedt who runs the blog Trendenser. She spoke of coming trends in interior decoration and design, paper being one :) the revival of the '80s another :(
My name wasn't mentioned on the programme - I was only referred to as an artist from Gothenburg (because my work was exhibited there at the time... *sigh*). Anyway, if you want to read about me, Jay Anderson over at the red road blog did an interview with me the other week, and it's up now!

going there

I love going by train, so relaxing...
Our little trip to Göteborg consisted of days well spent. I brought some material so I could work in the borrowed apartment (tack Pia!). Did a wonderful discovery among the books there: Mingering Mike - The Amazing Career of an Imaginary Soul Superstar! 

The girls and I met with friends and family. We did some shopping, the girls went to the cinema, we ate too much and walked until our feet hurt. I saw Karin Johansson at Röhsska and Frida Kahlo and Jan Lööf at Göteborgs Konstmuseum.

I packed the remainders of my exhibition at Rum för Papper - some of my paper bowls will appear on swedish television(!), Frida from the blog Trendenser will be interviewed about trend spotting, tomorrow, Saturday Nov 5th, on Go' kväll. Here's one that'll be glued to the screen!

All in all, we were very content with our autumn holiday.
Hope you have a nice weekend!
