Change is good

Going somewhere is good. Falling for something is good.   Leaving is good.  

Grinding

Stormy weather just keeps going. I’ve been busy getting a manicure on a grinding wheel. Also got some paperweights polished.  

I keep forgetting that I’m in Iceland…

I see only the nature around me.

This week, we’ve been working hard with Sigrun in the hot studio before turning the furnace off. Huh!   Beautiful glasses by Sigrun O. Einarsdottir and Soren Larsen, Gler i Bergvik.

More snow

There’s so much snow here, and it’s so cold..! Almost like being in Finland. Prr.

Walk

There’s someone else going for walks on a beach too.

NO Global Tour

Santiago Sierra’s exhibition has just opened in Reykjavik art museum Hafnarhus. I went to see the film screening of NO, Global Tour by Santiago Sierra at Cinema Paradise.  

Snow, snow and wind

A moment of dancing lights

I wake up, I see the water vapor rising from the pool and the whole sky is full of northern lights. I have never seen them dancing like that. I’m staring out of… Continue reading

All the pretty things

All the pretty things can be found from the beach after days of stormy weather.
