On the make

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

Haven’t blogged in an age because I decided to get offline and make some stuff with my hands. Here are some things I made -

Also got a pinterest – which is good for storing my craft ideas! Really hard to escape how horrifyingly twee about 99.9% of other users are though…

Nathalie Du Pasquier was part of the post-modern design and architecture group Memphis which was started by Ettore Sottsass in the early 1980s.

Pop television has never been done better than the Italians did it in the late 70/early 80s. I am deadly serious.
