MATS A Week 5 Gift Market

Susanne Kasielke

Last week's assignment for Lilla Roger's "Make Art That Sells" course was to create art for a zipper pouch while using personal things that we love and collect.

Collecting things? Me? I don't know what you're talking about, Lilla ;)

Actually it's quite the opposite in case you don't know me: I collect A LOT of things. From vintage books to old picture frames, vintage children's toys, old suitcases and so on and so forth - You probably get the idea...
How am I going to decide what I'll use for my piece of art? I have so much to choose from my obsessions.
After some back and forth and having ALL - I repeat ALL - my collections spread out in my apartment on the floor, I took a step back and decided to not use any.
The reason was that I didn't wanna run into some copyright issues (old branded toys and books), but also I wanted to create work that is very colorful. If I look around in my apartment, the colors are very muted, brownish, kind of vintage.
Very often in my work I use this kind of color palette and I wanted to design something fresh and colorful.

So what now?

I was sitting with my hot cup of tea on the sofa, looked outside and thought:
Wow all these beautiful colored leaves on the trees - Fall is so beautiful!
There it was: my theme for this week - HAPPY FALL.
And out I went to collect pieces of fall.

I love vintage books!
