The Festival of Britain emblem by Abram Games, on this unashamedly 50s carafe. The off-pink colour adding some cheer...even better filled with Port!

The Festival of Britain emblem by Abram Games, appropriately on a tea caddy. Something strangely alluring about the many pieces of merchandise commissioned for the Festival. Itself brought Modernism to the fore as a new hope for a prosperous future after the ruination of the WWII.

Flashback to the 5th of May 1951 and the opening of the Festival of Britain. Another thing to add to the collection of ephemera relating to the Festival.

Happy to oblige to the challenge by @lahollings with a blank in-between frame from Elizabeth Price's fantastic video work The Woolworths Choir of the Year 1979 (2012)

Digger realness 
Nothing like a Monday morning to start sorting out the drive of the house. Give it three days it will look civilised.

Perfect weather to try to light up for the first time the log burner we inherited

Sometimes like Pokemon...you have to collect them all.

All three sizes of anvil vase from Hornsea Pottery's Home Decor range. It was made from 1959 until 1962 one of the most groundbreaking designs by John Clappison.

A must have for any Clappison fan...it even graces the cover of his biography.

One pattern that up to now has been escaping me...the evolution of the Home Decor range when John Clappison was asked to remove the relief white bud decoration and add this inlaid pattern. I have seen examples also in red and dark blue inlay. This is the largest Lattice giardinierre and was produced in 1960 in charcoal inlay.

A little glimpse of the absolutely delicious installation by Marguerite Humeau opening this morning as part of Art Now the series of emerging artists exhibitions that started in 1995.

Saw and grammed her surreal installation at @nottm_contemp great to have her adding all this saturated intensity.

I predict thousands of gramms
