Fragments Make The Whole

My current work is created from fragments of observation and perception of my environment. I record images during my daily journeys around the city streets of Oxford. Ornamentation and wealth is combined with alternative encounters in the city: graffiti, road kill, rubbish and road markings.



My jewellery consists of these images, which have been cut from old steel cans and fused together. In turn these whole pieces become fragments of new images, reminiscent of ornamental ironwork or… Continue

He rents tent and RV sites but also has primitive hogans for rent as well. And if you like to seek inner peace through traditional ceremonies, Howard has two Sweat Lodges. One is a Navajo Way… Continue

Craft in the 21st century has become a forum for activist causes such as feminism, democracy, land reform and the gift economy. There are strong parallels here with the origins of the Arts and Crafts Movement as a revival of traditions lost through industrialisation. So what’s new?

Feng Shui Balance - Modern Decor

When designing a room for a client... one of the first things you need to ask, is how arty can one get? Designers can go all out, crazy with color, texture, and money... but when your client asks for simple and clean, this is what they should get. Not too many colors, keeping it clear of chaos and menagerie. This is a great example of good clean design. Simple furniture, simplistic colors and elegance. Mobiles adding a repetitive pattern from the… Continue

RULE THE WORLD

Friends of Carlotta Gallery, Zuerich, Switzerland

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
