Artipelag outing

 On Mattias birthday we went on a boatride to Artipelag - the beautiful art museum in the Stockholm Archipelago. Two amazing exhibitions: One, Two, Tree! about new Swedish wood design and the wonderful art of William Wegman; Hello Nature. We had a wonderful day.

pretty as a picture - the view through a museum window...

William Wegmans work - I just love it! Makes me happy.

FormDesign Center and Kasthall

FormDesign Center, a shop situated in the heart of Malmö, "is a meeting place for design and architecture. Here you will find a showcase of the very best contemporary Swedish and Scandinavian design." They are running a paper theme in the shop this summer. Three of my paper cups are available for purchase there (under the plexiglas covers).

A thistle of  mine can be seen in the shop window of Kasthall, Stockholm, during their summer display :)

Forming Words in Manchester!

Welcome to the opening of Forming Words in Manchester Craft and Design Centre

The show has moved on from Flow Gallery in Notting Hill, London. 17 artists show a selection of contemporary craft objects inspired by text. I'm participating with three thistles, shown below.

I can't be there tomorrow when it opens, but I'd love to visit Manchester - hopefully I can make it there before the show ends in November.

Olivia's Mary Janes

I have to admit it - I love shoes...
These paper shoes are modeled after my daughter Olivia's old Mary Janes that she wore at the age of 6.
