Christmas Market at Cafe Cairo
The Serpentine Pavilion 2012
Went to see a showcase of the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council Awards and was very much impressed by the vase made by Wally Gilbert. I have came across images of his work before, but seeing one of the up close, really drove it home the beauty of the texture that could be achieved by chasing techniques.
First Botanical Illustration
My first botanical illustrations went out for assessment! Couple of subjects withered before I finished drawing them. But I am sure glad that a branch of good old Brixton Hill grown ivy (a.k. Hedera helix) proved to be sufficiently resilient .
Some images from the ricent workshop by Rod Kelly that I attended at West Dean few weeks ago.
One starts with an image of a Diatom Arachnoidiscus and a flat disc of copper.. and little by little the shape and design emerges in metal just as if it was clay..
On the way to Craft Central, stopped by the amazing Illuminated Manuscript collection at the British Library. Very much recommend! What's remarcable, is that most of these precious documents look as well thumbed as my good old copy of "The Master and Margarita"
Had a smile looking at a quirky take on the English hide by Jon Male when visited TENT London this year. http://www.studiojonmale.com
