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:
Embroidered shoes anyone ?
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!
