Great War Commemorative Sculptures | Gerry Judah | Via

Gerry Judah’s twin sculptures in the nave of St Paul’s Cathedral have been erected to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Their white cruciform shapes evoking the meticulously maintained war graves of northern France and further afield, in fact represent an utterly contemporary questioning of the continued need for warfare.

This is public art unafraid of the obvious, not footling with self-expression or abstract aesthetics, but with the world as it was and as it is. And yet in the embedded themes are the great abstracts: God, life, death, love, despair and hope.

Stamped Clay Bowls | Gathering Beauty
Aren’t these gorgeous?! And seriously, the process is so easy to follow, you’re going to have a stack of these bowls in no time. What to do with all your bowls? Keep them on your bedside table or near your front door for your keys/jewels/watch. Put it in your bathroom with some pretty soaps in it or just use them as decoration anywhere in your house. Plus this would make a really lovely gift - you should be able to get a few bowls from a packet of clay, meaning you’ve got a cheap gift that looks a million bucks!

It’s the end of the school year, and my son decided to make a couple of pens as gifts for his teachers. Spalted tiger oak and birdseye maple.
