Stone hanging - one of my big projects
Today I had too much to do with my kids, household and other mundane matters - I'll be off for Vienna for the weekend as well - but instead I'll show you one of my finished big projects, decorating my kitchen/livingroom. It's an embellished wall hanging, almost 120 x 60 cm, punched grey wool in different shades and qualities, rough sackcloth, brown lace, some raw and fine silk fibers, natural linen fibers, woolen handspun yarn.
Going back to my Swedish roots, I enjoy working with wool and felt in a kind of Viking manner, combining the archaic natural wool with the image of stone, often using old Nordic mythological symbols, signs, runes.
