“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 new rug Fin by Finn photosession at Reynisfjara in s-Iceland.  we where there quite early to beat the tourists.  We nearly did that however the 10 people enjoying the black lava beach were not in our way so everything went by the book.
