HERRIOTT GRACE is a venture of father and daughter, and this is their story. In the three years since, their small shop has grown to selling an array of hand carved and hand turned wooden objects, including spoons, bowls, pedestals, candy dishes, serving boards, rolling pins, plates and mortar and pestle sets. All are one of a kind and made entirely of salvaged, chemical-free wood, ranging in type, age, and origin. None are exactly the same, and thus none are perfect. But the slight imperfections are an effect of the handmade quality. They’ve also introduced a select line of exclusive porcelain dishware. The ceramic pieces are cast in small runs, and boast the rustic, tactile beauty for which their brand is known.

Greenland’s Art is an updated and revised version of Kaalund great work from 1979 on art in Greenland. A summary description of Greenland’s art of prehistoric times to the present.

The Inuit art is also rich in evidence of nature, culture, landscape and living conditions, which puts things into different perspective. It demands response. Greenland is a country and an ancient territory. A book about the art in Greenland is very relevant. When you read it you understand the art of Greenland, you understand the people in Greenland and you maybe get to know Greenland even a little better. Kaalund book is a good place to start.

Bodil Marie Kaalund-Jørgensen is a Danish painter, printmaker textile artist and author.
