OWED TO THE FOG

“It was owing to the fog that night came upon him”

Owed to the fog is a family of containers aimed to exist one within the other. Shading from white to dark, these pieces are a ceremony dedicated to local climate variations: light, mist and darkness. Made out of seal guts and seal skin, they investigate the particular process of hand sewing techniques used in the making of the traditional Greenlandic costume.
