Yesterday I sent a little email to swissmiss (one of my favorite design blogs) about some little buttons I'd made. I thought if I was lucky it would get posted and generate a few sales. Well it did get posted, and it certainly has generated some sales! Lets just say it looks like I've got a long weekend ahead of me packing and posting. It's also been posted on a number of other sites and the orders seem to still be coming. All I can really say is thank you swissmiss and thank you internet :)

New Work - Little Red Sled, Match Muncher, Mr Button & Handy Ruler

I recently added four new designs to my website, two of which are available to buy in the shop. The 'Handy Ruler' and 'Mr Buttons' are two simple little pieces that I've produced myself. They're fun little items and not to be taken too seriously. The 'Match Muncher' is a product I made last year as Christmas presents for friends and family and I hope to produce some more of these for sale in the future. The 'Little Red Sled' was also developed last year. Fingers crossed for lots of snow soon!

Josh Vogel

This film about wood turner Josh Vogel is not only interesting but beautifully shot by The Scout.

City Cottage by Verstas Architects

To me this 'City Cottage' located in Helsinki is a beautiful example of micro architecture. I could quite happily live here (with the addition of a workshop). Well done Verstas Architects.

How to make a vinyl record

Recently I've been getting into vinyl again. There's something about listening to an LP with a hint of crackle and pop that can't be beaten. I even like having to flip it over half way through. It's like taking a half time break during a football match. After doing a little googling I found this great article and audio slideshow about the vinyl factory in Hayes, Middlesex, the last major plant in the UK that presses about 25,000 records a week. Great stuff.

Interactive Robotic Painting Machine

This Interactive CNC Robotic Painting Machine blew my mind. The thing I find amazing is how the g-code that controls the machine is generated by audio input? Top skills Ben Grosser.

London Design Festival

I Had a great time at the London Design Festival last weekend. Taking a good look around and getting very inspired. Suzie Hogan's film on Vimeo sums up the design festival brilliantly.
