Kitchen Utensils – Work In Progress

DSCN2405 DSCN2403 DSCN2402 DSCN2399I’m hoping to continue this project and make a whole loads of paper kitchen utensils. These are just the few that I managed to do today. Frying pans are hard work, as are ladles. Those are little bastards to make! The main theme of this subject that I have been covering is how we define ‘home’. I have broken it down though and obviously at the moment I’m tackling the kitchens. I’ve realised that kitchens are funny places as they seem to have become the social room these days. It’s sometimes the first room a person will see and i’m quite intrigued with how people keep their kitchens. Is it a designer kitchen? do you have all your cooking stuff on display? is it a basic kitchen? Bet you’re fed up with saying the word kitchen now so i’ll wrap up. Its just something that i’ve been looking into as a starter for some new work. I’m quite pleased with everything so far but can’t wait to add more. x

All The Things I Don’t Own

It was a sad day when I realised I don’t own that thingamajig that you use to hammer meat…

If I’m ever fortunate enough to move out of my parents house, there seems to be a lot of crap i’ll need to buy. This piece first came about with me doing little objects from the kitchen but then I started to feel a little bitter so I started cutting objects that I realised I don’t own. When I do move out, I’ll have two beautiful lights and a lot of cds and dvds…and that’s about it. If my mother is to believed, a spatula is not only a handy tool for cooking, but also an amazing design accessory for the home.

Paper Cut Crown

Its my niece’s birthday in a couple of days so I thought I would make her a special crown for her party…it’ll probably be in shreds by the end of the night if the younger niece gets her hands on it! I’ve really enjoyed doing this, i go through various periods where I hate doing cut outs and nothing turns out how i’d like but I was fairly relaxed when I sat down to do this and didn’t heap a mound of pressure on myself for it.

I’ve been listening to the Reith Lectures recently which the artist Grayson Perry has been giving.  I always get rather apprehensive about listening to artists giving lectures about art as you always come out of it feeling rather inferior. Grayson Perry has a very down to earth way about him and doesn’t use a load of arty vocabulary where you spend more time concentrating on translating rather than just appreciating what is being said.  I highly recommend you have a listen if you think its something you might be interested in – Reith Lectures with Grayson Perry

Also, the Ohh Deer Pillow Fight competition is still open. You have little under a week to get your limited edition cushions. You can find my designs here 1,2,3

Right then, done! x
