this weeks harvest







This week's studio harvest was 16 little clouds, 2 different plaster moulds for making lotus fruit shapes and 2 for making chrysanthemum shapes.

When sketching, I played around with different Chinese auspicious symbols for the mosaics. Thought that would be something good to meet either on your way out or on your way home. And they are just nice to look at even if you don't know a thing of their original meaning.

More symbols and their meaning
More clouds

Have a joyful weekwnd!

Hi Bibbi!

It's been a long time , so thought I'd drop by and say hi.
Love the clouds by the way, they remind me of Tibetan cloud illustrations. Waiting to see the finished pieces.

camilla, det är härligt att jobba!
masala chai, yes I think the cloud shape has drifted all over the Asian sky.
megha punater, hope you get a chance soon, I also miss it when I've been away too long. Think it is something childish, the directness in the material.
