Norwegian artist, Are Mokkelbost has turned image cut outs to something amazing! Mokkelbost's new work "Entity" springs out of a commission for a school and kindergarten in Norway. He made collages from images cut directly out of children educational books, choosing only the illustrations that were originally hand drawn or painted. The transformation was simple, he said. The bits and pieces of pedagogic images cluster and form living creatures, where anything that defines a living entity, such as eyes and limbs, originally depicted something else.

Stig Lindberg, One of Sweden's most important postwar designers, Lindberg created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg pottery factory. Lindberg's design however stretched further than porcelain. He worked on a number of projects for Gustavsberg, designed televisions for Luma and even made illustrations for children's books.
