Mess is more...

Hello, I'm currently in the process of updating some of the features of my blog and I just noticed that this is making some posts look a bit messy with overlapping text and images etc..! Hopefully this will be sorted in the next day or so, but for now...

Chinami Ricketts


US based Chinami Ricketts creates these simple, enchanting fabrics using kasuri weaving techniques and natural dyes. The fabrics are then used to make kimono and obi, the traditional dress of her native Japan.

Dutch Door Press is run by Mara Murphy and Anna Branning who create all their gorgeous items by hand in their San Francisco studio. I love the bright colours and vintage, often Scandinavian, style.

Ian Breakwell

I recently managed to catch Ian Breakwell's short film 'The Other Side' at Sheffield's Millennium Gallery.


Inspired by the regular tea dances that took place on the terraces of Bexhill-on-Sea’s De La Warr Pavilion (below), it was shot in 2002 on the upper balcony overlooking the sea.

As the sun slowly sets the camera pans the couples, who dance to Schubert's Notturno D897 in E Minor.
                                                
Then, all of a sudden,the dancers are gone and only the music and the view remain. We are left pondering the curiously fleeting passage of the dance and of our dance. It is beautiful, poignant, melancholic and enchanting, totally drawing you away from the everyday world into stillness and quiet contemplation. 

The exhibition runs until January 2nd.
