"Where do you get your ideas from?" People innocently ask - little knowing that they won't then be able to get away for the next hour as we exhaustively explain the minutiae of our many inspirations and very possibly including unasked-for autobiographical details, only drawing breath as we shed a wistful tear, recalling our finest moments.
Who can forget "Pillows With a Pocket" ? The genius of our tubular waste-bins with no bottom?

Here is a design inspired by the combination of winter coming on, reading Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion and having swimming lessons....

The ultimate manifestation of which is this lampshade, which features scenes from the evolution of the mermaid in the primordial swamp, (Available in several charming colourways)
complete with SPOTTY TREES;

Lo! What should appear on our crab apple tree but this evil fungus which spells DEaTH

Possibly a case of life imitating art.


  1. cut it out quick thats coral fungus! cut back into healthy wood just above a bud or leaf node
    hope your poorly tree soon recovers!

  2. I did! Looks OK so far. Man my arm ached from sawing it off - it was THIS THICK!!!!
