Yesterday it was NC Furniture's turn to learn traditional weaving skills from Artist, Tim Johnson. They created structures to span the atrium, and learnt new skills and approaches to designing and making. As well as seeing the breadth of inspiration that an artist such as Tim Johnson draws from.

Sometimes it takes hours to establish who an artist is and where images come from. I found the top illustration this evening by Iranian illustrator, Alireza Goldouzian, and fell in love. I love the wheels, the misty airbrush effect and the strange cat owl creature. It is from the book 'The Odds in Creation'.

Rosalie Gascoigne (1917-1999). I love the soft washed out, white washed, sea washed qualities of this artists work that are like a mosaic of sea treasure or a jigsaw of driftwood.

Matteo Cocci's new work has a wonderful delicate pallet and treatment. It reminds me of walls stripped of paper and cracked plaster I love that rough used and lived in texture and treatment of paint.

Today's inspiration, after a week of making plastic bottle people with my students, is this lovely light bulb person by Sora Mizusawa. I joyfully found a light bulb on the beach this morning, the first of many I hope, and I can't wait to see who's face is going to come smiling out at me from its glass dome.
Anja Brunt has some new people to introduce to you, her lovely paint brush people, and because of these new friends I discovered the work of her friend Tineke Merirink in the post below.

A little bit of a heart for Valentines Day. I spent a mad weekend trying to construct a dress from toast to inspire my students working on a portfolio of 'food inspired fashion'. It is now hanging on the line to feed the birds.
I hope you are all having a very happy Valentines Day.
