Been in London for a few days, showing work at a press event with Design Nation.
First time at such an event run by Attenborough Saffron.
Much beautiful work by other makers from the collective. Design Nation is a great way to find all kinds of great stuff for the home desiged and made by British Makers.
Just found this image of one of our pieces on Dan Klein & Alan Pooles site. It features on the front cover of a catalogue for an exhition in 2005. Dan & Alan also have other interesting, specialist catalogues and books. Follow the link on Associates !
Happy Valentines !
Been away for a few days in Devon and Bournemouth. Good to feel the warmth of the sun and the light, which was amazing down by the coast. I know its a picture of a duck…. but the colours flashing in the light were wonderful. And on a walk in Devon the determined new growth from the dying moss covered tree trunk was good to see.
Just got back from town. It was a very good show ! Much outstanding work to feast the eyes and heart on. Not much glass, but much ceramics and Jewellery a plenty.
Also, satellite show of Philip and Monicas, Baldwin Guggisberg, just down the road towards the Tube station on Exhibition Road. Nadia and Angel at Vessel have done a great job of showing Philip and Monicas work. Well worth a look and the 200 yd walk from the front entrance of the V&A .
It was also good to see so many friendly faces from Rosedale, thank you to all who came along on the Friday !
Disappointing, that at the opening of the event, the Crafts Council did not announce the next venue for the show when it moves from the V&A for 2009. We all wait to see the next incarnation of this important event for European Applied Arts, in a ‘Post Craft’ world. The failure to announce has caused much speculation , which I hope it will be resolved quickly and no damage is done to the credability or continuity of the show.
If you are in or near London town I do recommend a look. There is a link on the blog to all the details.
Made the Post again on Saturday. Bit of a nice surprise. All to do with CIN… The Burns Owen Partnership did some research for CIN, about creatives in North Yorks. Turns out combine us as a group across the board, and we economically make more for the county than farming, forestry and fisheries.
