Curious about how this project is going to work out!
"We are currently working on a new collection of knitted sweaters that are each made from the wool of one of these merino sheep. There is only one flock of merino sheep in the Netherlands, owned by Mathee Kamp. The sheep have been shorn and the wool is on the way to be washed and spun."
I have done a small cooperation with Yves Drieghe, from 'Not Too Arty'. We designed a print together, based on one of my scarves, and I made 2 mini scarves, for the "very limited" t-shirts. :-) They are for boys/men, and for sale here.
Tuominen’s object works have their points of departure in visual ideas and thinking. Her art links together objects, words and images into a single rich jigsaw puzzle of ideas. In her hands, everyday utility objects, metal kitchen utensils, broken crockery or ordinary buttons from flee markets are miraculously transformed into something else, but without losing their original nature. Via small additions, the use of colourful balls of wool and skilful crochet-work, or simply by sorting and combining, realisations of the artist’s ideas in visual form grow organically out of them. A subtle addition brings about an unspoken metamorphosis. The works return to presence the colour of blueberry milk, the sounds of manual work, the chalk-smell of the school classroom, what it tastes like, what it feels like to the touch.
