Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

“Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?” was yesterday’s question and this week’s theme. Yes! I am! After all, orange IS one of my favorite colors!

Ein kleines Wortspiel leitete die wöchentliche Photo Challenge ein – ja, ich bin froh, dass es wieder soweit ist, denn orange IST eine meiner Lieblingsfarben!

Last year I visited the Hermès Festival des Métiers in Hamburg, Germany and couldn’t get enough of what the artisans of the company with the orange boxes are capable of.

Vergangenes Jahr war ich auf dem Hermès Festival des Métiers in Hamburg und konnte gar nicht genug davon bekommen, wozu die Mitarbeiter der Firma mit den orangefarbenen Kartons in der Lage sind.

so many scarves, so many colors - not just orange

From Glove Makers to Porcelain Painters there were various arts displayed and I do hope I will get to see the exhibition again somewhere sometime again. It was so fascinating and I’d love to learn more on how these artisans perfect their art  that in the end every piece they’ve manufactured is a (little) work of art.

Handschuhmacherei und Porzellan-Malerei waren nur zwei der vor Ort gezeigten Künste. Ich hoffe sehr, dass ich diese Ausstellung irgendwann irgendwo noch einmal sehen kann, denn es war faszinierend zuzusehen und ich würde gern noch so viel mehr darüber lernen, mit welcher Präzision die Kunsthandwerker ihre Stücke bearbeiten, die am Ende alle (kleine) Kunstwerke sind.

Of course Hermès Lucky Clover has a green side, too!

      🙂 Thanks! I still have pictures from last year’s Hermès Festival des Métiers and some notes I took back then. Who knows, maybe I can write some more about it. I think the Festival is now in Singapore.
      Many hugs xoxo 🙂
