I travelled the world and I live abroad. Yet, inside I still wander wide-open landscapes of home, dreaming Nordic dreams. Along the foggy dream-coasts with sandy soils, I soak the smell of seaweed and spruce, while the salty air tickles my cheeks. Oh, over these blue waters, strong winds shall carry my Nordic dreams.
This piece I have shaped the corners a bit to get a more organic / round shape in the bottom. I play with a wooden loom, pure wool, brass stick and black leather string. I like that feel. These are my favorite colors right now, I hope you like them too 🙂
I’m back in the world of weaving and creating and I couldn’t be more happy :). This one is a new version of my all time favorite. You can find my all time fave if you go to my instagram account and find my WEAVING story folder. look for the_ohsoblue_journal
My latest collection is named ` P L A Y `. My inspiration come from the beautiful Japanese kimono and obis. I have used their pretty colors combinations and translated them into my weavings. I used to visit Tokyo several times during my years working as a fashion designer. I fell totally in love with that city. Arriving in Tokyo was like entering another world.
The other part of the collection is kept in creme and blue hues. I found the pretty dip dyed wool in the town where I was born, Haderslev in the south of Denmark. I saved it for this special project. Still the Japanese kimono´s and obi´s are my inspiration. I like how the thin wool yarn and the bulky wool roving go hand in hand..
I had a wonderful Friday morning meeting with my friend Diana picking apples and sharing creative ideas. I met Diana through Instagram last year, she is so inspiring and warm hearted. Her photo skills are amazing and I enjoy watching her play with light, shadows and composition. Photo credit @diana_lovring
Once in a while I spend time re-decoration my son´s room. I love to mix & match homemade, vintage and new decor in his nusery. I collect all his drawings in a big book. When i re-decorate I look through the book and find new things for his wall. My favorite drawing is the paper doll with the checked shirt and a big tag, saying ´i love dad`…
I´m proud to see my woven wall hanging collection in the newly renovated penthouse apartments at Hotel Kong Arthur in Copenhagen, Denmark. Here nicely mixed with accessories from #placedebleu, styling #heyhome, photo #jacobkirk.
