This year Kalle and I are making the: Shane Brox christmas calendar. Every day you build a figurine, furnitures or decorations. The main character is: Mixit and the baby cat Storm. You have to recycle garbage for the building project. At the same time you help the danish organization: Red Barnet (save children). The store Panduro, which I also work at is supporting the project with craft supplies. Shane is amazing and a very good storyteller, se him on both links.
This week has been a great ceramic week! Ksenia was here from Sunday till today. We have been working on our Matroyoskhas and it is going in the right direction with the project. I really enjoy to collaborate with Ksenia, I´ve learnt a lot from her, about ceramics and Russia. Today I drove her "home" to Guldagergård. We stopped at Grimmerhus, so she could see the MIUMI exhibition and I got the chance to see the exhibition of the lastest Network groups. At Guldagergård Ksenia made lunch for me and after a short look in the studios I went on.
Next stop Kr. Hyllinge to get my princess from the exhibition with Susanne Pedersen.
On the road again, taking a detour to Ringsted. Mette from Guldagergård told me that Malene Hartmann Rasmussen was going to have an opening on a project she did for a music and culturel school. It is so good! Im a big fan of her ceramics!
My place! Almost everything was new this time. I made the Princess collection: Black´n white. The Bowls: Tales from somewhere else and the: Mini Monsters, which are similar to the ones I did to support the Danish Cancer society. And then I had some christmas ornaments and old stuff. It was a great weekend, people liked the newest production and everybody was nice.
If you love danish design and ceramics, just go and see theese shops. Designer Zoo in Copenhagen and Århus, Unika:K and Danish ceramics are on the web and Dina Vejling is in Odense. In almost every shop (not Unika:K) you can buy the princess. The people who works in the shops are very dedicated to their work and the people I know from the shops are alway very helpfull and nice. So a big thanks to all of you:)
