This is our x-mas show "Julbord" - 11 different tables laid by us members. Some more traditional than others... Have a seat!

this one is mine, it's called "Längtan" ("Longing"), a coffee tray for two. Made with the white margins from an old book.

paper collar
coffee constellations

Finally, photos from my exhibition at Galleri Aniara! I went there yesterday with friends - colleagues from Kaleido. After my paper objects we had lunch and then proceeded to Edsviks konsthall to see Odd Nerdrums paintings - strange and haunting.

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!

care for a cuppa?

This is what I'm doing now - cups cups and more cups. And saucers. It's for my next exhibition at Aniara Gallery, which I have named Java (which is an island in Indonesia where I lived 2 years during my childhood, but it's also Swedish slang for 'coffee' (!).

But tomorrow my girls and I are leaving for Gothenburg. They have a week off from school and are going off to see friends. I'm planning to see some exhibitions, meet with friends and bring back the remainders of my exhibition at Rum för Papper.

 A day off to go to my colleague Ebba for an embroidery workshop with some other fellow Kaleido members. Pure pleasure!
we started off by drawing each other without looking at the paper
then we chose an interesting detail
on my way...

last minute prep

Last minute preparations; books for the shop and a quick combing of dog before leaving her to the dog trimmer. Too long haired as usual. These journals/sketchbooks will be for sale at Rum för Papper during my exhibition. The covers are of different materials; paper (with illustrations on the endpages), book cloth and leather. The sheets inside are acid-free, white, suitable for writing or drawing. Lousy lighting, not very flattering photos.

Tomorrow morning I'll catch a train at 7.40 am for Gothenburg. Now a walk with Asta - back from the trimmer with a crew-cut, and then to bed. Good night!
