persian pony by victor skellern, 1939
 new england industries by claire leighton, 1950 
kalkulium suite by eduardo paolozzi, 1971
heartsease by edward bawden, 1952
an amazing eclectic collection of designs and illustrations on show at the wedgwood museum.  documenting the history of wedgwood from its founding in 1759 by josiah wedgwood, a true innovator who's pioneering techniques are still employed today.  all the designs are documented right up to current collections and my favourite are pictured above, particularly the eduardo paolozzi and victor skellern designs.

kelido camera

these are a selection of the first publicly exhibited abstract photographs in the history of art. vortographs by alvin langdon coburn, photographer attributed to the vorticist movement shown in london 1917. coburn used a 'vortoscope' (an attachment to his camera made from three mirrors placed in the shape of a triangle) to capture these beautifully angular, graphic works.

a stunning show, spanning a life time of work.
from the surreal and contemplative to the raw and violent abstraction, miró mastered many mediums and was truly and great experimenter and inspiration.

for a good cause

my brother along with friends chris and ewan is currently in romania, on his way to mongolia. this summer the group are taking part in the mongol rally, driving from britain through europe and beyond to finish in mongolia. its all for charity (and a bit of adventure). they are raising money for the bristol based charity above and beyond, international disaster response charity mercy corps and mongolian childrens charity christina noble children's foundation.
so to make sure they all left looking smart i printed the team a few t-shirts with their team logo on the front, i don't think they will come back looking so clean...

take a look at their progress on the rock the casbaatah team map and please sponsor them if you can. good luck guys!
