Hello hello hello (or g'day g'day g'day, if I go Aussie on you, lol). FF is late again, but I refuse to apologise. I refuse because I have had a strange, weird, busy week, which involved lots of computer time and headaches caused by excessive computer time, and being interviewed by my uni for their youtube interview thingy! (Of which I'll post a link when its up). In the interview I talked about my work with the UK charity CBM - the overseas disability charity, and also my academic work and sporting achievements.
However, onto the FF, of which is going to be an ode to old tins (old tins?!?). Yes, old tins (I blame my mama for this interest in old tins, for she collects tins and has some gorgeous ones in her collection.).
Aren't they old and vintagey and pretty?!? There is something quite moving (emotionally) about old tins as well - there is a history to them, a story that could and would be interesting. Who has owned the tin before, what was it like when it was new, what journey's has it been on, and how did it end up on etsy????
On etsy, I also have a shop update to share . . .
I had a lot of fun making these. They are inspired by Christopher Dresser (of whom I have written about before), they reflect a simplification of the design process to allow the essence of a shape, a colour, a stitch to remain.
I also think there is a certain Scandinavian influence to them, that simple, light, handmade aesthetic, that enriches and inspires the mind. Let me know what you think!
