Tomorrow is opening night for manos and I’m almost ready for it! See some glimpses on flickr. It feels good to have the log bowl from Loyal Loot to hold on to and Daniel’s ceramics looks absolutely lovely in the sunshine.

Here’s a moment of peace from my office wall this morning. It’s Tord Boontje’s garland making a beautiful shadow. Apart from that, my days are pretty much jam-packed full of preparations for the opening of manos next week and the usual day to day running of the workshop. When looking out over my greenhouse this afternoon, I must say that it didn’t look like it will be an inspirational and beautiful shop in a weeks time… Whenever I feel I’ve taken on a bit much, I say to myself that it’s good to challenge yourself and this is a little seed of something that will grow and evolve with every day and it doesn’t have to be perfect!

The poster for manos came yesterday and I can’t stop staring at it, I think it’s wonderful! The idea is to incorporate my handwriting and so I’ll write whatever is happening in the shop on the poster. The graphic design is by my friend Eva Wilsson. I’ve mentioned her before on my own blog.

The azalea loves it in the greenhouse and I hope manos will too – thank you for wishing me well! I’m spending as much time as I can putting together the first manos collection – there are so many lovely things out there so it is an easy and at the same time hard task.

Right now I’m working with next years most exiting project for me; I’m opening up a small shop in my green-house and it will offer not only my ceramics but other beautiful handmade and design objects as well. We’ve named it manos (spanish for ‘hands’) and the doors will be opening online and off-line in February/March! The logo and all the graphic material is designed by Eva Wilsson.
