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.

Spring has arrived

 

And although I’m an autumn girl, I can feel how nature is changing.

Spring has arrived and like when we look for a better position sitting in a new chair or in bed when we want to sleep a little bit more, she’s settling. Wind, rain, changing temperatures.

Out & inside ourselves, something new is growing strong, the old and weak is disappearing, and the sunshine brings light to every creature and every object.

The life of a Bird by Edith M.Thomas

Thou art clothed on with plumes, as with leaves,
Frond-like, and lighter than air;
Thy pinions are arrows in sheaves,
That carry thee none knoweth where.

Thou fliest, and none gives pursuit,
Thy realm both the earth and the sky;
Thou hast in thy bosom a flute,
The glance of a soul in thine eye.

Thou obeyest a sovereign power
That sets thee on Summer’s track;
Thou knowest the tide and the hour
When to advance, or turn back.

Into the world thou art flung,
Thou herald of rapture and light.
Thou weavest a home for thy young–
And none but thyself hath the sleight.

Out of the world thou art gone,
And who shall say where is thy rest?
A rapture and light are withdrawn
Into some Heaven-side nest.

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.
