Gallery Rob Koudijs
International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects
A bit more of a craft crowd (can I say slightly older?) at the Saatchi Gallery today. It was rented out for an International collectors fair. Quite a few traditional objects, but then in between you were hit with great creativity, both in terms of humor and handiwork. An entertaining "Af-fair".
I am craving this fabulous female Ted Noten "Gun" with a lipstick burner, pill pocket and a gold chip to buy yourself free!!! How fun (says the "Pacifist").
The same Gallery showed these fabulous "Inter-Act" necklaces by Katja Prins.

Hakutai (A thousand years)
Enamelled Copper object with silver leaf
Yufuki Gallery (Tokyo)
Enamelled copper object with gold & silver leaf.
Each of these objects are made from a single copper sheet that is pinched and formed by hand. The animated copper bodies are then decorated with numerous coats of glaze, with each coat requiring a separate firing. After glazing, silver or gold leaf is cut out and applied using a bamboo paddle, and fired on through separate firings. Each work takes approx. 1 month to complete, and requires more than 20 individual firings..... Wow, right?
Gallery Kunst 1, Norway
Adored this one.
The Belgian Gallery, Sofie Lachaert had a gorgeous set up with exciting jewelry.

Blås & Knåda (Sweden)
This artist has made a surprising turn from simple cups and plates to elaborate sculptures.
The Scottish Gallery
A box for your memories.....When scanned with a Smartphone barcode reader App, the viewer is connected to a website where stories can be told, memories stored, sounds locked away.
For sure something I have never come across before, how inventive.
Galerie Rosemarie Jager
...Made me think of the school reunion I am missing back in Norway tomorrow...
How fun is this lamp, and yes it works.
