On looking at Tunnock’s, I’ve discovered a whole subculture of people (scarily like me) who seem to have a fascination with all things red and gold and biscuity. There are even a couple of artists who have shown their love for Tunnock’s confectionary. Fiona Watson made the beautiful photo of the deer and the teacake,… Read more »

I’ve got plans to do a whole range of shiny Tunnock’s badges, Teacakes, Caramel Logs- the lot!

Who’d have thought that anyone would ever combine two of my favourite things? That’s right: biscuits and cardboard! There are loads more cartoons that are updated thrice weekly at http://www.mycardboardlife.com/!

My work for this project is based on stories about the baths, told to me by my father. It’s based on the senses involved in nostalgia- namely… Read more »
Natalie Moore at New Designers exhibited these beautiful plates! She dips lace and crochet in slip fires them. I’d love to eat cake from one of these!
I came across Debbie Smyth’s work last week. It’s absolutley fantastic- from a glance her drawings look very architectural and clean. Get a little closer though, and you can see that each line is made by a length of thread wound around a dress-making pin. Fabulous. Why didn’t I think of that?
After a prolonged curiosity with sock creatures, I downloaded a set of instructions by Nicky Gibson. She runs a “Making Things Club” at http://www.monster-monch.com/- I want to go! I’ve fashioned my own sock cats though…until I can have a real one!
Finally a few pictures of my work in one of the Art Tanks on Ward Rd, Dundee. Each Tank (there’s 5) contains Art which is then changed every 6 weeks. From left to right: Hand-embroideries depicting “extinct” UK shops: “William Low (1868 – 1994)”; “Littlewoods (1923 – 2004)”; Woolworths (1909 – 2009). Woolies is hanging… Read more »
