Glas installed

_IGP6157

Glas is now installed in two venues in Suffolk: the South Lookout Tower in Aldeburgh and The Dovecot at Snape Maltings. Venues open from Friday 6th – Sunday 8th November.

Glas

The old Gaelic word for green or maybe blue, Glas represents the confusion, conflation or uncertainty between these colours which is common in many languages and societies. As visitors to Suffolk, Morven Gregor and Gerry Loose bring a fresh cultural focus to place and people. This collaborative work considers both sea and land traditions, reflecting on flat green horizons and vast blue skyscapes, mining the languages of shipping and botany and of colour and secrecy, combining objects and images wrought into poetry.

An Oakwoods Almanac

77560014

An Oakwoods Almanac by Gerry Loose is now published. Photographs by Morven Gregor. As fits an almanac, the book references fishing reports of monks and witches, observations of stars and weather, but above all it focuses on two particular woodlands (Sunart in Ardnamurchan and Saari in Finland) their people, culture and language.

Aran

_IGP4698

November; as the temperature drops I delight in a new Aran jumper. To me, second-hand Aran jumpers are heritage pieces of knitting. Originally from Ireland, not Scotland, they have long been made in both places. Indeed one of the jumpers in my modest shared collection was made by Mrs.Murphy from Ireland for my Dad; short in body length, just the right size to be worn with a kilt, showing off the kilt belt buckle.
To celebrate these fabulous works, I’m starting a new project; images of Arans, with a project page to follow.
If you have a favourite Aran or are an Aran-knitter please get in touch.
