+ faded blue patchwork pot +

























Untitled (faded blue)
June 2014

Height 51cm, diameter 33cm

Hand-sewn patchwork pot made from discarded cotton fabric,
cardboard + sewing thread.

The pot was made using remnants from  oh so many rainy days. Instead of embroidering year and initials on the bottom, the pots will now have my new label sewn to the side. As there was not quite enough suitable fabric left, I had to sacrifice the bottom part of the second version of oh so many rainy days; what's left of it can be seen in the second last photo (90cm x 120cm)

I've been invited by Butik for Borddækning to make a bread basket for their upcoming show  Brødkurve (Bread baskets) opening Friday 13th of June. The brief said 'function related',  which I took the liberty to interpret quite loosely. The two objects are based on photographs from a 1950's DIY wicker book found in a charity shop (two last images are from the book) I really enjoy the instructional drawings + the lovely shadow cast by the baskets. The hands in Skitse are printed so they are life size. Both objects are hand cut.
