Pearl

The sea has always had a special place in our hearts.

This print is a kind of statement but it also open up to various reflections. Hopefully it will remind us about the environmental situation in our seas and open up for interesting conversations.

We use a lot of plastic in the world, it’s very useful, but unfortunately much of it ends up in the wrong place. On the other hand there is a lot of power in nature. For example the mussels help us to take care of the overfertilization of the seas. Maybe it’s still not too late!

25% of the profit from every sold print will go to a project by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (Naturskyddsföreningen) for healthier seas.

The screen print is based on a photograph. The mussel is found on the beach at Mellbystrand, Sweden. We put some clay inside to imitate the muscle and to be able to place the plastic pearl.

On the fly

During the Stockholm Design Week 2019 we had an exhibition with hand-dyed fabrics/sound absorbers and paper craft at manos, our absolute favorit store/workshop in Stockholm run by ceramic designer, Karin Eriksson.

 

We have long thought about textiles in interior design, they have a great ability to soften and to dampen sound. In our home we like to have as much light as possible, so we skip curtains, instead we choose to hang the fabric on the wall.  Some years ago we started to experiment with natural dyeing, now we have combined it with screen printing. The theme for the first collection of textile prints is birds. The motif is based on our print “Flying V” but this time the flock is printed spontaneously over the textile, as the title of the exhibition hints. This makes all the prints unique.

The fabrics are dyed with: wine, acorn, black bean and hollyhock.

 

All the ceramics are made by Karin Eriksson, the potter with green fingers ; )

In addition to meeting you in person, one of the nice thing for us with #jollygoodlördag is to have a deadline to clean up the studio and re-arrange the wall : )

Akvarellmuseet

Maybe this could be our new family tradition. For the second year, we spent a February week at Akvarellmuseet in Skärhamn. One of those places in the archipelago that is crowded in the summer and very peaceful in the winter. A lot of time for exploring nature and aquarelle, what a delight!

Suomi!

Finland and Sweden have much in common but there are also big differences. Especially when it comes to war and peace. Finland is a young nation and we feel that the fighting spirit is still present.  Another big difference is the SAUNA that is a part of the daily life in Finland but in Sweden it’s just something that is offered at the public swimming pool.

When we visit Finland it’s always summer, we are off grid more or less all the time and no one is in a hurry. So we can say that our picture of Finland is a bit romanticized. Maybe that’s why our prints based on photos taken over there have a special room in our hearts.

Anyway.

Today we want to say Happy Birthday Suomi Finland !

Finland 100 years!

This is Sauna Vihta, our tribute to Finland who celebrate 100 years of independence.

 

 

Vihta-40x50-crop-outline-P1090839

For us Finland is sauna. Every summer when we are on our way to the cottage on the Finnish countryside we cross our fingers and hope that the sauna will be intact and ready for some fire. But it’s important to heat slow and during the waiting it’s good to make a sauna vihta!

Picnic at FORMEX

This time we exhibited together with scandinaviaform at Formex. It was a very good choice since we could enjoy a little meadow, which felt so nice together with the prints.
