Wouldn’t it be amazing if all buildings were so pretty? #architecture #Photography #Glastonbury
Wow…I officially haven’t posted anything for like a whole year…actually it might even be longer than that!
New year’s resolution – start posting again!
Everything’s changed its a little bit scary…still lets keep our hopes bright for the future.
Paint and wire writing art
Celebrating the 150th birthday of Alice, these quirky wall hangings make a great gift for the curious minded.
These Wall Mounted Animal Heads are handmade, using various felts and british standard padding. As the name suggests these Feltsidermy are created using mainly felt. Each head is filled with wadding and is backed onto a foam disc giving each head a nice backing board and will hang neatly onto the wall with a small loop on the back.
The Dormouse is complete with hand made artistic gold finish wire glasses.
All materials used are vegan friendly and kind to the environment, the felt itself is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Over the last week I’ve been playing with constructed textiles and thought I’d try laying brass buttons in a dish of latex (so much fun!) It took about 3 days to dry out and when I removed the buttons the latex had imprinted the pattern and taken the colouring from them. Now I can cut them up and use them as buttons.
Striking body adornment, really eye catching and inspiring. Re-blogged from Alexandros Nikolis Pinterest board body adornment.

A slightly more definitive and detailed illustration for my Water of Life collection.
Tried a slightly different illustration style to go with my Water of Life collection. I wanted the illustration to seem a little more grown up.

Autumn/Winter 2014 – Earthy hues of Orange and brown, with flashes of contrasting blue, future urban camouflage!
Development taken from research, experimenting with different colours, textures and shapes on the body – using my adornment experiments.
‘Beyond infinity’ was a 2011, multi-sensory exhibition by the french artist Serge Salat, using mirrors, light, music, and art within architecture to change visitors’ perceptions of space. This was a large exhibition measuring 12.45 by 10.8 meters at a height of 3.8 meters, the main structure a steel infrastructure with a series of honeycomb aluminium panels covered in mirrors. Internally the space utilises spatial techniques traditional of Suzhou gardens as a means to send the visitor on a ‘mystical journey’. Painted wooden grids and steps add additional structure.
Within the installation, there is music playing, the lighting changes as visitors move throughout the various spaces whose dimensions are almost never ending as a result of the reflections cast by the mirrors helped by the lighting which changes from ultraviolet blue to white, offering a complete cycle that recreates day and night.
