Excuse the slightly dodgy photo but black does not come out very well on screen.
I made this hat recently for my mum. It is a hand blocked fur felt cloche with a hand molded brim to give a more flattering frame to the face than the usual bell shape which is typical on this style.
Come January when I do my BTEC there will be plenty more where this came from. It's her Christmas present so keep schtum !!

So I recently invested in a beautiful book called 'Paper Craft', an amazing source of paper related art and graphic design...here are some of my favourites:
I watched an interview about his work, and he is so intelligent. He uses books and glues them together, painstakingly cutting away old pages of history and science, re-looking at how we disregard books for the internet and reinventing our idea of them. I've just found out he has an exhibition in NY, so I'm definitely going to have a look.
Everything I inspire to be. Intricate, delicate and beautiful.
A young graphic designer who is going against the grain of computer aided design methods of usual graphic design and mixing in contemporary colorful cut out sculpted paper to create really interesting typography and images.

During a trip to Berlin, i went to a exhibition on Bauhaus which showcase different disciplines of art and design that they were not know for. The school encouraged its students to experiment with photography alongside their own specialism,to be involved with dance installations and costumes. All the work was still new and fresh - still relevant today as it was went they produced their work.
