Room39-collaboration-Umu-kisshion1

 

I met Petra Green by Instagram, and after a swap of goods, she suggested the possibility of making a collaboration together. After some mails I was threading my loom again with hand dyed painted wool yarn. I had sworn not to weave “ummus” fabric again. But I caught her enthusiasm with the idea of making rounded cushions. I sent the fabric to London and some months after, voilà! They are beautifully well done.

Don’t forget to visit her online shop here.

“XI, XII & XIII” Creative process.

In this video I show how I’ve worked in this project. After to swim beyond inspiration images and sensations, I started playing with my hands; looking for the shapes. I don’t talk about the materials or colours, because -in that project- it was is a choice I made, not a part of the creative process.

Birds

/ / /

Until recently, birds never caught my attention. But this has changed recently.

Maybe because on my way to the studio there is a very large tree from which many birds sing every morning. Or maybe because from my desk I can see a nest of pigeons. Or maybe because few days ago I learned -in a workshop- how to make a nest.

Anyway, so when I’ve started thinking about the new collection of bags and textiles I’ve decided that I want to dedicate it to these animals.

Below I present a picture of my moodboard as well as a sneak preview of the new leather goods. Hope you like them.

2. Workshops. 

Since august I’m teaching every month a weavimg workshop at duduá. It makes me feel happier than I had ever thought. It’s so pleasant to share what I know with a small group during three hours in a lovely place./ Desde l’agost que cada mes faig un taller de tapís a duduá, de moment sempre s’omplen i em fan molt feliç.

Loom, tools and yarns are included.

3.Romanesque inspired.

I’m working in a project for an international fashion/accessories contest. The only rule is to be inspired in “art”. I’ve choosen romanesque architecture: stone walls, rounded archs. For now I just can show you a prototype made with plastics, trying to imagine how will look the result in another material, like leather. / Estic treballant en un projecte per a presentar en un concurs de moda/accessoris. M’he inspirat en l’arquitectura romànica i de moment només us puc ensenyar un dels prototips a l’espera del material definitiu.

That’s all for now, I hope to be more regular posting on the blog this new year. I think it’s because Instagram is faster, I’m becoming lazy with wordpress. Anyway, happy and creative new year 2014. / Greta  

/ I això és tot per ara, espero ser més regular al blog tot i les facilitats de Instagram. De totes maneres, us desitjo un feliç i creatiu any nou 2014. / Greta.
