"Växtkraft. Handkraft. Naturkraft." is an exhibition by Suzanne Grahn Lindquist combining free bobbin lace making and photography. Trying to find and interpret nature's forms is a common thread in Suzanne's pictures, capturing the structures of the large scale as well as the extreme, abstract close-up. The tension lies in discovering that the lines and patterns in a landscape can also be found in the close-up of a flower petal. Each piece is accompanied by a haiku poem.Read more
Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Inspired by urban landscapes seen from the air, these framed compositions show the irregular repetition of our man-made patterns in nature.

The paper is handmade by Deepa Panchamia at the Paper House in Fiskars Village, Finland, using cotton mixed with bits of nature.
Materials: Handmade cotton paper
Technique: Stitching, cutwork and layering
Measurements: 23x23cm or 40x50cm
This soft-sculpture cushion can be re-knotted and re-shaped as desired. Designed and handmade in London exclusively for the Fiberspace Collection by Merel Karhof, the wind knitted cushion is upholstered in merino wool harvested from the Wind Knitting Factory.
The blades of this mobile wind factory embrace more than a meter in diameter, and the wind caught by them powers the machine. In this way it is possible to knit long woollen tubes. When it is windy the machine knits fast and with less wind, the machine knits slowly. Production is dictated by nature. As each piece is handcrafted every single one is unique and marked with the knitting date and the time it took to harvest.
Material: 100% Merino wool, leather and brass detail
Colour: Grey melange
Measurements: Diameter 10cm, Length 2m
