Souvenir

Thrilled with this hand thrown, painted and glazed jug I bought in Spain earlier this summer. It reminds me of the kind of pottery my parents had around the house when I was growing up - gems collected after years of them living abroad. So happy to have one of my own.

Tie Dye

An afternoon spent at my friend Min's house a couple of weeks ago attempting to tie dye - with great results! We've got the bug - hopefully our friends and family like tie dye as I see all sorts handmade gifts coming their way...

Sofa

So many things to moan about with a huge white leather sofa (it came with my furnished flat), but at least it's big enough for me to cover with various thrifted and homemade throws and cushions. My recent granny square blanket is a favourite charity shop purchase.

Chains of Protection

Couple from Salamanca, 1912
Joaquín Sorolla
An image from the brilliant Sorolla: Master of Light exhibition at the National Gallery.
The couple wear their betrothal outfits, the woman resplendent in chains and necklaces of corals, medallions and reliquaries all of which are symbols of protection.
The exhibition closes on 7th July 2019.

Francesca Woodman

Untitled, Francesca Woodman, 1979
I've been a fan of Woodman's work for a long time - and written about her a few times on this blog over the years. I was reminded of this beautiful picture when looking at the catalogue from last years exhibition at the Tate Liverpool, which showed Woodman's work alongside Egon Shiele's.
