Ceramist Valeria Nascimento

"My inspiration is drawn mostly from the natural world and porcelain has the smoothness and the malleability that I need to create new shapes, manipulating it to appear in some cases defiantly weightless. My work is about repetitive sequencing with separate elements to form a cohesive sculptural group. I am principally interested in large-scale wall installation projects". Valeria Nascimento.

The home of interior architect Rut Kára

The April issue of Bo Bedre Denmark is out, with a feature I did on the beautiful home of one of Iceland´s best interior architects, Rut Káradottir. It was love at first sight when Rut set her well trained eyes on the house and although the house, originally built in 1968, needed some extreme makeover to fit the taste and needs of the family, Rut immediately saw its huge potential. Today, modern elements, so characteristic of Rut´s work, entwine beautifully with more traditional, even rustic elements found in the choice of furniture and objects d´art throughout the two-storey family home, giving the otherwise ultra-modern home, a warm and embracing ambiance. The feature has also appeared in the Nowegian issue of Bo Bedre, February issue, where one of the photographs, shot by the very talented Trine Thorsen, graced the front page.

Trend Tablet

I´m such a huge admirer of trend forecaster, curator, publisher and lecturer Lidewij (Li) Edelkoort and have blogged about her earlier. Trend Tablet is a social media platform, designed and curated by Li and her on-line venue for explaining how trends grow, evolve and flow. Trend Tablet  is a great read for those interested in trends. The photographs displayed on the website are utterly gorgeous and inspirational.
