PICK ME UP is open!
We’re running a project called ‘Fresh Ones’ - creating one-off, hand-crafted objects for everyday living. There will be a limited range of blank objects, such as pots, book-ends, dolls, paper-weights, tote bags & t-shirts, which we will be hand embellishing in our shaker style workshop. We also have a set of special items; Pumps, Throw, Cap, Ukelele & Vase that we have got some friends to make for us. Participants include; Espen Friberg & Jessica Williams, Qubik & Workshop, Nathaniel Russell &, Tom Hudson. Matt Hodson will also be joining us Sat 19th painting a lovely vase.
Come Say hello!
We’ll be documenting all our activity regularly over the week here.

The Joy of Living!
We got asked to be a part of this show,for which I completed a piece. We went to the opening and it was a lovely affair, it felt great to be a part of the project and our piece sold. Lovely! Thanks to whoever bought it!
I will reveal my piece after the show finishes as all designs are remaining anonymous at present.
Joy of Living is a charity project that unites over 100 leading lights in the design community to galvanise support for Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres. Design author Max Fraser has set the challenge to a cross-section of new and established UK designers to create a desirable artwork that expresses the Joy of Living – all starting from a simple sheet of A4 graph paper. The signed works will be exhibited and on sale in London’s inspiring space for art, culture and creative exchange, Somerset House, from 15 – 21 March.
Tic Toc Pop Up Shop

PICK ME UP is open!
Yesterday, which is now the day before, a French girl called me from Germany but I said I was having my photo taken and couldn’t help her. I half climbed a set of aluminium step ladders and pretended to read a volume of Moomin cartoons. I thought of skidding on my knees along he dusty wooden floor but instead slowly threw two cardboard boxes printed with my initials into the air. Time moved quickly but contained the correct number of minutes and hours and after a familiar supper we blew on whistles and pulled words out of a wooden bowl that made pictures in our heads and joy in our breaths. Relaxed, we read as the windows sung a wheezing drone till we climbed the stairs to the attic where we slept well until the morning, dreaming of islands forgotten by boats but never by the waves which lap them.
Myself, Richard, Nicolas and Owen, went to the Horniman museum. It is an amazing museum that serves as a distillation of all the big museums in London, and has an Aquarium! We saw, grumpy fish, flat toads, crazy face masks, a sloth without a head and I snapped an apple in two, making me an official member of Tuff Ladz.
