colour collection



I have a nice collection of colours in a studio drawer. They are tests of coloured slips, it happens now and then that I open the drawer just to look at them for a while and feel content. A lot if effort, patience and carefulness was put into making them, now they are a treasure even if I don't use them so very often. Such possibilities lie there waiting. Seems tests I do nowadays never come the same size and shape.

This photo made me join flickr and the group Camilla started there a while ago: Organised collections now contains over 200 images, many kinds of collections and different approaches to organising things. Inspiring!

Photos from my show in KHVC Gallery, Örebro, on until November, here.


Good luck! Coomoo, new web shop run by six designers/craftspeople.
Release party in Malmö at Volym, Thursday 25th 18 - 21.30
The e-shop will also sell work by other designer/makers, send your suggestions.

Good morning!
Yes, it's a peaceful island at overloaded times. The drawer is in a very heavy piece of furniture from a printing house, used for the lead types.
You both have beautiful blogs!

Hej Sandra! Tacktack. Jag ska åka upp och ta en sista titt på det till helgen. Man får vänta tills hela femtiotalet blir k-märkt om man ska känna sig stolt över stan. Eller tills plannjaplåten blir det...
