Art project “Sans og samling” in Langør – looking great both during daytime and when the twilight comes. The seaside and the small marina make up a fantastic backdrop and stage and the weather gods play along in the most beautiful way. What more can I ask for?
The installation can be seen until Sunday. See more of the Kunstø-program.
Burning raku is always fascinating. The whole process of getting the fine tea bowls safely in – and out – of the redglowing oven, and further to the reduction in the bucket of sawdust that highlights characteristic fine crackles of the glaze is totally mesmerizing.
Might be that clothes and hair smells strongly afterwards, as if you’ve been sitting next to a campfire all day. But it is definitely worth it when your kitchen shelves burst with your own ceramic design.
My artistic way is constantly surprising me with new turns and twists. Recently this beautiful and solid graphics press (bought used, but in an almost indestructible quality) has found it’s way into my atelier.
I am not a graphic artist as such – but always happy to learn and to experiment. And this press definitely opens for a lot of new opportunities – not least in relation to the creation of artists’ books.
For a start I try out printing some leaves and flowers from the backyard.
Annual spring trip to Berlin – including a few new activities like a bike ride to Wannsee (to see Max Liebermann’s Villa and Hauz der Wannseekonferenz) – to an evening dedicated a ritual cleansing of body and soul in the Hamam of Kreuzberg (unfortunately not possible to take pictures – it was otherwise very evocative motifs – all these whole and half-naked women).
I’ve chosen a fairly relaxed and green track – spiced up with a few museum and gallery visits, Sunday flea markeds and the most serious 1. May demonstration I’ve ever attended.
I feel well stocked with new energy and inspiration and look forward to return home and implement some of the new ideas in my own garden and atelier!
