“Early in the day it was whispered that we should sail in a boat, only thou and I, and never a soul in the world would know of this our pilgrimage to no country and to no end.
In that shoreless ocean, at thy silently listening smile my songs would swell in melodies, free as waves, free from all bondage of words.
Is the time not come yet? Are there works still to do? Lo, the evening has come down upon the shore and in the fading light the seabirds come flying to their nests.
Who knows when the chains will be off, and the boat, like the last glimmer of sunset, vanish into the night?”
Sail Away — Rabindranath Tagore
Mistlur is the Nordic translation for sea mist. Inspired by the visual textures and colours of the life of a fisherman; a scene of the early hours at a port, with the sounds of seagulls singing and the fishermen bringing in their catch. A tale of brightly coloured fishing nets, old wooden boats and rugged up fishermen with their woollen beanies and sweaters. Combined with the traditional patterns of the British Isles; plaids, ginghams and checks; it brings a cultural link to the collection.
