I´m happy to share this with you!

One month ago I was contacted by a French publisher of children's books that worked on a story called L’anneau de Claddagh (The Claddagh Ring).

Art exhibition at Hadeland Glassverk

Today we opened an art exhibition by the norwegian artist Cathrine Knudsen at Hadeland Glassverk. Cathrine Knudsen has received fantastic response for her beautiful art, inspired by nature's palette and organic forms. The delicate simplicity and serenity are essential in her work. This wonderful art exhibition "Stille bevegelse" ("Silent movement") will be shown at Hadeland Glassverk from the 12th of September til the 1st of November. So, if you have the chance, I will recommend you to stop by and experience some of her art and also take a look at the rest of the artwork at Hadeland Glassverk.
