Remedios Vincent

Recycling as part of the circle of life:  Remedios Vincent uses reclaimed antiques to create new objects to honour the history and aesthetics of good craftsmanship.

As re-imagined ghosts of the past, is it any surprise that some of his creations have a macabre, Frankenstein flavour?

Kitchen Update x

Oh Joy aboundeth! I got home yesterday to see the antique French bookcase sitting in it’s new home for the first time!   The builders have done a sublime job incorporating it into the new kitchen..one day it will hold all our crockery and glassware..one day..to say I love it is an understatement. It’s always a dodgy time when you imagine a concept – and you’re pretty sure it’s going to work..but you never know until it’s actually in place. The relief!

The plan is now for all the big units to disappear off to be spray painted whilst the room is decorated and the floor is laid…which has bought on a major paint crisis.

I thought I was blissfully sailing along, all paint decisions for the kitchen made.

Except the spray painters want an RAL number for the colour so they can mix up their own paint with additional hardeners. And I’ve chosen a boutique paint that no-one knows – Madison Grey by Abigail Ahern.

I’m running off now to the paint shop to see if they can help me – the last thing I want to do is to start looking at tester pots again…and of course it’s the big fascinator poker night piss-up party tonight.  Always the way…
