UPMARKET börjar imorgon!

Välkomna till Upmarket i Trädgårdsföreningen i Göteborg!

En konsthantverksmarknad där bland annat jag kommer att vara med. Jag har nästan bott i verkstan senaste veckorna, så det finns massor av nya grejer, plus handtryckta disktrasor och kort!
Dessutom delar jag bord med Charlotta Klingström och Özay Emert, två trevliga och talangfyllda konsthantverkare.

Öppet kl12-18 fredag, lördag & söndag.

Med andra ord, väl värt ett besök!

Pakistan







































You've all heard about the terrible devastating floods in Pakistan by now... You may also know that i was born there, and grew up there. It's difficult to take in what i hear on the radio and read on the news and hear from my parents friends... so so many people. And the consequences of it - many haven't yet recovered from the earthquake that destroyed so much 2005.

I don't know what to do... but I thought i would post a few sites that give info about organisations that are receiving donations for the relief efforts:

magic pens

Our lovely friend Leila came for a visit. She brought a few Chartpak Blender pens, which dissolve the ink from a laser-jet printer, making it possible to transfer images! Since there is iron-oxide in the ink, they can be used on ceramics, and fire to various shades of brown. I learned about it from the brilliant American ceramist David Allyn, he held a workshop while he was here exhibiting at Sintra.










art/rubbish


Like i mentioned the other day, we saw an exhibition on Saturday that i wasn't too impressed with.
But today i saw it in a skip!
Interesting that what is art one day is rubbish the next...
