“Sleipnir” at the DesignMarch Reykjavik 2016

Invited by Syrusson DesignHouse to show my latest creation “Sleipnir” at their stand at Hafnarhus Reykjavik Art Museum at the DesignMarch 2016.

This time I decided to look for inspiration in our heritage and chose the eight legged horse “Sleipnir” that belonged to Odin the Norse god.  I desited to dig deeper and did some research on Viking fibulas and other jewlery.  The outcome was this purple rug “Sleipnir” in solid colour of purple with heavy cutting and finishing by hand as usual.

Following photos show the work progress leading leading up to the DesignMarch.

The Saatchi Gallery London.

Friday Dec. 4th Shanko Rugs showcased two rugs at a private event hosted by The Rolls Royce Enthusiast Club at the Saatchi Gallery.  It was the launching of the RREC yearbook “Strive for Perfection – A Celebration of Design & Luxury “.  Such an honour and a privilidge to be part of such exclusive event.  There was not much time for photos but managed to make time for the photo below when setting up the exhibition.

It was a great success and a wonderful long week-end with hubby being pampered in a 5 star hotel in centre of London
