Beautiful large chandelier by Karin Ferner

Isn´t this large chandelier amazing?! I love it and wish I could have one in my own home, but here are neither space enough or the right environment to match a big bold piece like this. The chandelier is made by Karin Ferner who works with folk tradition but gives it a new twist.

It is exhibited at Kulturen in Lund, a nice museum with a good art and craft history exhibition that I can recommend.

Compare this womans dress to jeans and t-shirt… I have never seen someone actually wear a scandia folk dress like this, it is over a hundred years since it was commonly used. But today many artist take inspiration from this highly decorated folk art and makes something modern from it, and I think that is a great craft movement.

På Kulturen i Lund visas en mycket fin utställning om folkkonst och konsthantverk. Där hänger den stora fantastiska ljuskronan av Karin Ferner. Hon kallar den ”Ängladisco”! Åh vad gärna jag skulle vilja ha ett ängladisco här hemma! Jag älskar detta sätt att utveckla en konsthantverkstradition till något nytt, vackert, roligt och nästan galet. Materialet är förtennad bläckplåt, papper, pärlor och mycket mer.
