at the end of our day trip to london last week me + my mum made a little visit to the v+a where we came upon a small exhibition called out of the ordinary: spectacular craft
just a handful of pieces...i felt drawn to the simplicity of some of the works there + inspired in particular by these artists
what we thought at first was ordinary work equipment left in the corner...but on taking a second look revealed a beautiful use of mother of pearl inlay. rawlplugs made of diamonds + gold. paint splatterings hand embroidered on to dust sheets.
these patterns are so delicate + unbelievably some are created in dust. i love the super subtle colours...haunting.
this feels like a strange post for me. it's so rare that i go to any exhibitions these days. this one made me think i should go to more + to explore a bit more what's out there. i'm feeling a resolutions list taking shape for 2008 already!
