Kaffe Fassett - 50 years in colour

20150701_144815


June 1st, my youngest daughter, a good friend and myself visited Kaffe Fassett's anniversary exhibition at Hadeland Glassverk.

It was a treat indeed - knitting, embroideries, paintings  and quilts - colours, textures and a magnificent exhibition in every way.

If you have the chance, it is open another month, until 16. August.

Some of my favourites:

P1010978

Embroidered shoes anyone ?

 

P1010988

 

P1020003

 

P1020006

P1020016

P1020013

 

P1020014

P1020026

When I was in Nantes, France, 2 years ago, I actually watched Kaffe Fassett start this peacock embroidery. It was fun to see it again, not yet finished though.
It is good to see even a great artist has Work In Slow Progress!

We spent the whole day at Hadeland Glassverk - also visiting the shops, seeing glass being made by hand and mouth + visiting the historic glass exhibition.

Contemporary glass art from the 50's - and it is still good :-)
In fact I own one of those green bowls ( the one in the back corner ).

We all agreed - a lovely day was had by all!

An amazing exhibition. I wonder if it will come to Australia?
