My last post was far to wordy so here are some photographs from the Anthropologie shop on Regent Street in London. Beautiful shop and I just love these chandeliers made from re-cycled plastic bottles.

On the whole I felt the fair was very good, I was there on the Sunday and it seemed to be well attended. For me though there were to many jewellers working in a to similar way. The stand out makers for me were ceramacist Adam Frew, who makes pots made from porcelain decorated with inky cobalt drawings. The imagery is simple and narrative and has a great spontaneity. Judith Davies's porcelain vessels which have a delicate ethereal quality which to me looked like abstract paintings in ceramic form, together with the work of Elspeth Edmondson exhibiting side by side the work complemented each others really well. Elspeth's work investigates the structure of paper in combination with the letterpress print process.

One of my favourite online shops is Dee Puddy Garden and Interiors. Dee has a range of beautiful items to decorate home and garden. Handmade collectables, storage solutions and lighting, bringing together colour and texture as well as practical and functional elements. I especially like her range of christmas decorations and gifts.

I love these images which I came across whilst browsing the internet. They are the work of Gordon Young a visual artist who creates art for the public domain. They were made for a new library in Crawley West Sussex in 2009. The artist has created a forest of oak columns which stand floor to ceiling throughout the library. Information was gathered from library users on their favourite books, places and memories, this was used to generate the 14 columns, each column reflecting a different subject from gothic to romantic and sited in their relevant locations.
