More Inger Waage dishes

I have recently added some fat stripey dishes to my Inger Waage collection (Stavangerflint). They provide a nice contrast to my other IW items in the same colour range, I think. When I search for Inger Waage designs online I'm always surprised at just how much this woman produced in her time. Not to mention her creativity!

Creative friends

I am lucky enough to have some very talented creative friends. One of them is Mette Fjørtoft Vågnes, half of pottery designer duo Scusi. I visited her yesterday in her workshop at Kirkeristen in Oslo. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, I just want to add that it was such an inspiring visit - I love seeing all the wacky but beautiful products that Mette creates.

Some visual muzak while you wait

I'm preparing an exciting post for tomorrow. 
Meanwhile, here's a little something I made earlier ;-)

Forgive me Reader, it's been several months since my last post

3 pics and a few hail the blogosphere and I'm forgiven... Right?

I'll admit it - I almost gave up blogging. I have however decided to give it another go. There has been a lot of things going on in my life lately, distracting me from posting on the blog, and also I've simply lacked motivation. I'm very happy to say it's slowly coming back :-)

I am thinking I might do some changes to the blog - maybe also move it to a different location. (I'll let you know.) Or maybe it will just continue it's bumpy journey much in the same way that it has done for years now. We'll see.

Anyway, I think I know what you guys like, and here is some of my latest vintage finds:

Two teak chairs with beautiful green wool upholstery, produced at Låte Møbelfabrikk, Norway. My guess is they date back to the late '50s/early '60s.

 This huge rug is Danish and most likely from the 1960s. This snap shot was taken with my phone in the second hand shop where it still resides (waiting to be dry cleaned before I pick it up), hence the not so great photo quality. I might post a better pic once I get it home.

I can't give you any info on this beautiful vase, I'm afraid... In fact, I hope maybe someone out there can help me. It is a medium sized vase and very heavy. If I were to guess I'd say it's either a Hadeland item or maybe from Orrefors. It could be something else entirely, of course. If you recognise it, please drop me a line.
