it's a fantastic material
in its natural form with quite a smell
work for a costume and for an exhibition

like the photo report on the valenkis in "die Zeit"

Annemarie Schwarzenbach II

Sie war von Kontinent zu Kontinent gewandert, und doch war ihr rastloses Unterwegssein mehr ein Schweben, ein Tanz, ein Versuch diesem Erdball zu entfliehen. 
 Ernst Merz
Immer sehen wir in unserer Erinnerung sie auf der Schwelle unserer Redaktionsräume erscheinen als eine Wiederkehrende von grosser Reise oder als Abschiednehmende vor einem Weitergehen. (...). Wir unterschätzten ihr Fernweh. Sie liess sich nicht halten. Kaum abgesessen, flog sie wieder auf wie ein ruheloser Vogel, so, als berge die Ferne den grossen Fund ihres Lebens.
Arnold Kübler

Annemarie Schwarzenbach

The similarity on photo is amazing
the fashion shoot in the 01 magazine let me think about her once again
5 years ago, Annemarie Schwarzenbach was one of my woman inspiration for my graduation collection
her way of living and dressing always fascinated me
ihre ungestillte Sehnsucht in der Sucht nach mehr Leben
the S/S 12 collection from Céline was also inspired by her

Brockenhaus treasures IV

a tiny very fragile vase which I would like to use for oliveoil
a xylography
like that the asian looking boy is leaning against the frame
the thinker - Rodin

found more, but it doesn't fit in here
and I'm upset with the new version from picasa
standing like a donky in front of a mountain of photos not knowing where my tools are

tanning II

the light and cold inside was even worse then last time
splashes of color in the greyish green of the old factory

the orange is an ostrich with feet
undyed ostrich feet to dry
bath for tanning sheep skin

stripes in progress

don't want to use it all for cushions
my little amounts of wool
so I will knit a spring sweater
tryed out the combinations and yes there are many possibilities
the wool has not the same tension and thickness
anyway don't have to follow the rules always :-)
