A World of glass and sew on

By spotogspindel | December 9, 2015

I went to experience Terje Isungset and Arve Henriksen´s magical concert last night: World of glass. Without a doubt, one of this years absolute esthetical highlights! All the instruments were made of glass by Estonian glassblowers. The music is so visual! Not only all the instruments, bathed in a cold blue light, but the music itself. I had all kind of pictures in my mind while listening, but I can best describe it as is a glacier made music for the Aurora Borealis to dance to. If you do have a chance to hear them, you should absolutely do so, it adds to the experience to see them, not just hear them. And on top of everything, the whole concert was improvised. I am so impressed by people who are that musical!


As for me, I thought it was about time I got down to business on practical part of my exam. So I´ve spent the day drawing with my sewing machine.


I am quite eager to see what it will look like when it´s all done, to be honest. I am making a 3 feet high embroidered version of my little niece (actually she´s only 81 cm, so I´m quite on target considering how the embroidery will make the fabric shrink).


Well, the feet are done…-ish. I´ll have to go over everything once I´m done, and do some tweaking here and there.
