I was really excited to see this wonderful exhibition by the Danish designer Karin Ostergaard - her exhibition was "Inspired by Nature" and was simply stunning. Karin kindly agreed to let me take her photograph, next to this beautiful wall hanging "Blowing in the wind" (Som vinden blæser). The quilting on this wall hanging was amazing and the centre of these poppies were just incredible. I have photographed most of her work, so please excuse the photo-heavy blog post! If you click onto the photographs, they will enlarge so you can see them better. Sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy!
..... "In open air" (Under åben himmel) and "Down under I" followed by "Down under II".....
"Petrified life I", "Petrified life II" and finally "Petrified life III"(Forstenet liv)
"The killer whale's song" (Spækhuggerens sang) - this was truely amazing and was receiving a lot of lovely comments as I was admiring this exhibition.
"Birds sings - some screams" (Hver Fugl synger med sit næb)
"Freedom like the swallows in the sky" (Friheden flyver, som svalerne højt i det blå) and yes those really ARE 3-D swallows nests - this piece was incredible!
and finally "The Danish summer" (Du danske sommer). This really was a wonderful exhibition, and I was so glad that I was able to spend time looking at it - I actually went back all four days of the show to admire this and every time I saw different things to look at in these incredible wall hangings.
