Glos-tonbury - Golden Lion (last summer)

Looking through last years photos I found some which I'd forgotton to blog about at the time (it's the Bristol disease ;), of a very happy day last year - and gives me a longing for all things sunny and summery.

Stokes Croft China & NY Delftware

Ceramics are getting a bit of a face lift with the lovely and wonderful PRSC project Stokes Croft China, and a more graff style from New York Delft by lovegrove&repucci.
Just before Christmas I had a guided tour of the work at Stokes Croft China by Mr PRSC, who used to work in the pottery industry. It was great to see the progression where 6 months ago you could only choose from simple mugs and customise them with deadstock decals, and now their is a selection of pottery which even includes toilet bowls. Some of the highlights were collaboration with some chosen artists who've taken the decals and added their own twist (see below). I especially love the 'Cardinal moustache' pieces.

Maison Martin Margiela

Behind the Wizard of Oz' curtain.

In just the same way most of us don't want to know who Banksy really is, I really don't want to know too much about Martin Margiela. Yoox have shown this peak into Margiela atelier in Paris. And thank goodness it is just a tease. Where the seamstress's seem more adept at using plyers than sewing machines.

Margiela doesn't appear to buy into the exploitation of promoting his company or work, which is so commonly used today (or 'selling out' as we used to say). His clothes don't show a label with a brand or name on it, just blank or a series of numbers. And so the appearance of this video seems to confirm the rumour that he has left his company.

More info about Margiela
and the new Maison Margiela - website (which is adorably in a fake 'Dos' look)
