matthew day jackson – eat yourself

23 May

had a chance to go eat a piece of matthew day jackson at a party the other night. i also drank some white wine which hopefully has no bodily connection to the artist.

as part of his show in the london branch of hauser & wirth, the american artist was exhibiting two life-sized casts of himself manufactured in salty and sweet foodstuffs, the latter of which was offered to guests in a somewhat cannibalistic, maussian gifting act.

bon appetit

fresh and wild – plates

16 May

spied on this beautiful new bone china bird-motif plate from anthropologie in g’s phone last night, and the blossoms stoneware serving platter below: with their fresh, springy feel they make my heart all aflutter.

now i just need a secluded spot with a  sweeping willow perching over a creek and a little picnic blanket. are you in?

cakes for japan- fundraising pop-up

15 Mar


fundraising efforts are springing up everywhere as the magnitude of the unfolding catastrophe in japan becomes clear.

if you’re in east london at the weekend, head to 118 shoreditch high street, where a pop-up themed-fundraiser called cakes for japan will be selling donated sweet treats.

the idea was sprogged by the cake genius at– fingers crossed for a brilliant turnout.

take-away ceramics

8 Mar

a big pile of just-made pancakes would sit so pretty in any of these take-away tin containers reborn as ceramic plates from lorena barrezueta.

the brooklyn-based designer’s gourmet collection comes in white with a gold rim or in colours to match your toppings. yum.

step it up

24 Feb

oh- i really like this A-Z map vinyl floor from floorink– apparently it graces the floor of a lucky school in south london.

imagine learning your way through the heart of the city from the comfort of your own kitchen, like a cabbie preparing for ‘the Knowledge’.

as seen in the march issue of onoffice magazine.

seville orange marmalade

6 Feb

the lovely g&p came over yesterday to fulfill what is becoming a yearly tradition now: seville orange marmalade making. well- p conducted and we followed instructions.

we had a motley crew of jars, a few more lovely friends and family and free-flowing chatter and vino. the recipe we used was tamasin day-lewis, which worked really well last year. happy times.
