I designed this clock after the kallhovd board that was often used in the pagan Norwegian home to help keep the evil spirits out of the house and protect the home from harm.
I used typical Vest Agder scrolls and flowers on a black or black-green background.
This 10" plate was a 2017 Palooza Painting class project. The design includes typical scrolls, flowers and a border treatment. It's painted on a JoSonja basecoat color, Galaxy Blue.
This unfinished tine was a gift which was made by John Wanke. Vest Agder seemed an appropriate style. I chose a dark blue background, but black would also be a good choice.
This Vest Agder covered bowl was painted using JoSonja acrylics. The bowl, including lid measure 7 ½” x 5”.
This Vest Agder cream carafe was painted in 2005 using JoSonja acrylics. It measures 5 ¼” in diameter x 7 ½” tall.
This Vest Agder style cheese cutting board is painted with basic characteristics and palette of the style. Many teardrops were used which makes it fun to paint.
It makes a wonderful gift, especially when you add a block of cheese and cheese cutter.
Door escutcheons are used either side of a door knob. This Vest Agder design was painted in 2005 using JoSonja’s acrylics. It measures 3 7/8” x 24 ¼” x 3/8”.
The Vest Agder design is painted with traditional colors on this interesting tray. Its easily adaptable to other objects or even just the corner design can be repeated on table corners, drawers, etc.
