Look here: My pixies have come alive…

 

Everything is white.

This is the third project I have made together with my friend Guri. I have made the felted work and Guri has made all the white strings and the umbrella sculpture and the seat with special plants on.
The idea to this project came, when I got a lot of white carded wool from one of my students. As drawing croquis is one of my favorite things to do, I thought that combining my schetches with the white wool would be exiting.

The “KRAKA” chair.

Now our chair number two is finished. Again it has been a great pleasure to work together with my friend Guri on making this idea get alive. This chair is quite different from the first one we made. After I have been drawing croquis for two seasons, I got the basic idea already while we worked with […]

The head chair is now finished

New project with an old chair in the leading part….

Right now I am working on a project together with my good friend Guri. With each our different techniques we make a sculpture out of the chair.

Since that I have wanted to work with a chair again and a year ago I got a beautifull old chair that would be perfect for the idea I had.

Pixie-parade

Here I show you some examples of the pixies I have made this Christmas. Many of them are already sold, so I am glad, I have photoes of them. I have tried to place them in little groups and some are still in my workshop.

Private course with Alexandra from Germany

In the middle of November Alexandra from Germany was on a private course at my workshop and she wanted to learn how to make a baby figure.We had three very

Self portrait

During the summer I have made experiments with needle felted portraits of women and for that I have developed a new technique that makes the faces look like painted pictures but still a with textile look

My student Pippa Sweeney from Ireland has now finished her “one to one” course at my studio. The theme she has learned, was to needle felt a head and a hand in life size –and needle them onto a big piece of raw fleece

My little green man

Here’s a video of my little green theatre figure. He shows a little of what he can do. He is very easy to act with and to make look alive, because he is made with a technique that makes him very movable.
