These are some products made with the Beetle print.
The first two photo's show some work in progress. I knitted the cover for this raw wooden stool and now finish it with a crocheted edge. The two cards are made of a sample and can be ordered at Etsy (soon).
Recently I was asked to show my work in a flower shop which will open at the beginning of December.This vase I made for the shop. I think this vase in fresh green and white will be lovely with a nice bunch of flowers in it!
These are a nice cards to send and even better to receive ! The cards are handmade and each card has a knitted sample. The cards are decorated with small stamps used in India as tika (red dot that Hindu women apply on their forehead). Each card has an envelope and is packaged in a foil pouch.
This lamp shade is hand knitted with 100% off white wool. I sew the seam together with a crochet hook and a contrasting red thread. We have now beautiful atmospheric lighting in the living room during these dark days!
Because of a major renovation, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam closed since 2004. Currently, the museum temporarily open to the public. Barbara Kruger is one of the artist who made an installation designed especially for the building’s largest gallery, Kruger’s wraps the floor and walls with printed texts that “speak” directly and loudly to the spectator in a chorus of voices. Her provocative, emotionally charged statements about how people regard and treat each other disrupt the decorum of a traditional museum space. Bringing the world into her work and her work into the world, she confronts stereotypes and clichés, shattering them with a rigorous critique, a generous empathy and a sharp wit.
Last april I visited the Moderna Museet in Stockholm whereI first saw work by this American artist Barabara Kruger. Her work was installed in the museum entrance areas.
In March of 2010, Jim Denevan and his crew created a large scale artwork on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal, Siberia. The spiral of circles, along a fibonacci curve, grow from an origin of 18" to several miles in diameter.
The project is currently featured on The Anthropologist and is the subject of an upcoming documentary directed by Meredith Danluck.
Rachel John, inventor and innovator of Extreme Textiles, shows a gallery of 'First in the World' museum piece examples of this wonderfully fast method of hand crafting. Big tools and many strands of yarn used simultaneously to make extraordinary, and often luxurious, contemporary and traditional home furnishings - rugs, throws, curtains, whatever.
Warm woolen knitted scarf with snowflake design. The slightly felted woolen scarf is warm and soft. One end of the scarf is crocheted with Norwegian wool. Style the scarf in your own way and let the winter come!
Richard Serra (1939) is the artist of this work "The matter of time". Permanently exhibited in the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao-Spain. The visitor can go in the huge spirals and undulating walls of weathering steel. Unexpected twists and sloping walls, bringing the organ of balance in confusion. A special and breathtaking experience!.
Breisels van kunstenares Erica Hogenbirk | 21-9-2010 | 12:31
Deze kunstenares steekt een oude textieltechniek in een nieuw jasje.
Uniek en handgemaakt
Breien is niet meer alleen van toen. Deze wollige breisels zijn uniek en handgemaakt. De zachte, wollige stofjes maken de spullen een leuke toevoeging aan het meubilair voor de aankomende herfst.
Elementen uit de natuur
Het werk van Erica Hogenbirk is geïnspireerd op verschillende culturen en elementen uit de natuur. Dit is te zien aan de verschillende lijnen en patronen die zij in haar werk heeft verwerkt. De dessins worden eerst geschetst in de computer en vervolgens met de breimachine verder verwerkt. Het hele proces is met de hand gedaan.
De hoes van de wollige krukjes is gemaakt van 100% scheerwol en door het vilt proces stevig en gemakkelijk afneembaar. Naast krukjes vindt u in de collectie ook gebreide tassen, sieraden, kussens en vazen van wol. Allemaal met de hand gebreid en dus zijn alle spullen uniek.
