Welcome to Dancing Colours
"A country business - the forerunner for the
millenium with the roots deep in the forests and traditions design
for the future "
My name is Sarah Larmour Mårskog. I work
as a designer and work with outworkers in the local villages to produce
clothes , costumes, quilts and interior decoration textiles. I am
over 50 years old, living as I do away from the constant bustle and
influences of city life I must create my own possibilities. I live
in the deep forests of northern Sweden with arching skies, water,
silence and the shimmering light of summer nights.
My impassioned creativity is conditioned and disciplined by my full
life, 30 years of a good marriage, 5 offspring ,6 grandchildren and
masses of people who weave in and out of my full life. Building an
own farm, children ,
grandchildren, workshops, friends, music, cooking and my garden. But
now when I see the growing trees as my timekeepers I try to communicate
my own truths in different ways.
Clothes can be a way to communicate
and show our dreams, vulnerability and strength. Pictures in half
forgotten storybooks, russian folkdance troupes, glimpses of indian
spledow in old english houses, old books and photos of shamans, dustclouds
in the desert, oriental colours vibrating in the sun, glittering cold
winter nights and a never encoding stream of homeless outcast suffering
people - temper my life to here and now and remind me to be considerate
of others. My cloths and costumes are part of the sum of the whole
of my life.
I work with "oneoffs", each garment is individual. I also
work personally with more "sacred" costumes that are meant
as art objects rather than garment.
