Soren Berger you sexy wood weilding turner! ...

    Absolutely bleedin geeeorgous! These lamp shades! stunningly carved so thin they permit the lowest glow to pass through the grain, lighting up the patterns of growth. Turned from one large piece of log the process and product are just scrumptious. Check out the video at the bottom.


Music by Waldeck who are bloody mint too.

Don't you know Dunkno Yoon?...

 Duk-no Yoon is this crazy cool metalsmith jewelery kinetic miniature sculpting artist! He creates elegantly fragile moving pieces which are intricately balanced and perfectly poised.

Making several different metal based objects from costume helmets to rings made with cogs by far the best are these equisite flying contraptions.

Tuendsday Market Day...

    I know I know my continuity on getting posts up on time is shocking. However I did go to the market yesterday and as always I think I picked up some things that I like but will probably never use and they will clutter up my home and life untill enevitably I turn into one of those grotesque horders with an intricate tunneling system running through my once beloved home. Walls now lost to piles of precariousley balanced tat which I will love to the very end although everything will be chipped and broken, mere shells and fragments to a reminder of a past life...

Woah nelly.

Untill then. I can still see my bedroom floor which I'm using as a unit of measurement to know at point of complete coverage I'll try to stop.

Onwards. Positively!  Tea and a read! A tiny tea in these preciously tiny blue chine tea cups maybe better for an espresso. I want to grow snow drops in them.

More fabric, more cushions?

And a collection of books. Their covers are beautiful, the faded colours of the masterpieces but especially fond of the old penguin classics, defiantly chosen for their titles, trying to figure out how I could make some kind of print or put them up on the wall??? I'll have a think and get back to you. Also the blank sketchbook with catch, defiantly inspiring me to draw in it when I do I'll post the pages up.

Tea Cups - £3 for 4
Penguins - I can't remember £3 for 2??
Sketch book and 7 Artist books - £5
Fabric 4 pieces - £2
