A Strange Definition of Mental Illness

I remember hearing an article on Radio 4's "All in the Mind" programme about how the definitions of mental illness were changing due to the re-writing of a single book which is generally used to define all mental illnesses. A psychiatrist who disagreed with the new definitions pointed out,



"most people in the west do not consider themselves to be fundamentally happy... because the majority of the population do not consider themselves to be happy, we could say that anyone…

Disagreeing With TS Eliot...

... I find February to be by far the cruellest month and the raw, icy blasts this year have not done anything to make me change my mind.

Light Snow



Lots of odd things to report on since my last post, including a box of "gingerbread gimps"…

Here's Tae Us, And Wha's Like Us? A Perverse Post For Burns' Night!

Alasdair Gray Art Walk - 1



So I am not going to write about Robert Burns at all. I don't mind Robert Burns, but rather like too many things we were given in school, I have a limited tolerance for him and, as with Shakespeare, I regret the…

Hallowe'en Post

Oooooo!



Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially…

GSA Jewellery Degree Show, 2014

Glasgow School of Art - Degree Show 2014 - 51



I think the whole arts world knew about the fire in the Glasgow School of Art, the functional art-school building by Charles Rennie Mackintosh which was SO fit for purpose in the early 1900s that it is…

North Glasgow College Jewellery Degree Show 2013

Last but not least - of course, these are my students - in the round of Scottish degree shows is the turn of North Glasgow College. We've only been offering degrees in Jewellery Design and Technology for three years, validated through Leeds University - the last time for Leeds, we have an exciting partnership with Dundee's own Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art starting next academic year - but this is the first year that I've personally felt part of the degree-show circuit, felt as if we…

Craftex 2013

So, after all the blogging of the degree shows and other peoples' students' work, it is now the time of my own non-degree students to shine. Every year, the august body, The Trades Hall of Glasgow, a marvellous philanthropic association of people who strive to preserve the craft skills in society, organise a competition between the colleges of Further Education in which the students compete to win substantial cash prizes,…

Glasgow School of Art Degree Show 2013

The circuit of degree shows rolls on and last night was the turn of the graduates at the Glasgow School of Art  to show their stuff and unlike last year, which - though good - felt a little "flat", this was a show buzzing with ideas and energy, every bit as good as the Dundee and Edinburgh shows over the last few weeks.…

What is broken is not lost - Packaging

Artist: Natalia Araya

Sometimes, when something is broken, we take it for granted and decide it doesn't serve its purpose anymore. It just will never be the same again. Even if it's fixed, we are overlooking the immense potential things can have. With this small series, I would like to invite you to think twice next time something (or someone) broken crosses your path.

Horse: Porcelain, sterling silver, watch parts, leather.
