Paper Scales

Andy Singleton has been commissioned by global digital publisher of all things Harry Potter to conjure up a set of fantastical paper crafted beasts. If you're a fan of the wizzarding world, you are probably very familiar with some of the characters Andy has crafted. We implore you to explore them in detail over at the Pottermore website, have a lemon sherbet and find out your patronus whilst you're at it. That sounds like something Dumbeldore might say.

The Vyne

You'll spot Chris Brown's installation and new visitor experience for the house at The National Trust site, The Vyne in Hampshire. His beautifully crafted work is perfectly matched with the Tudo history of the building and will be installed whilst they undergo some extensive conservation work.  The Vyne has an original Tudor chapel as part of the house which Chris has brought to life with his linocuts Henry V111 and Anne Boelyn on horsebaack and processions of activity continued throughtout the buidling. 

 

We're going to make it a CIA day out this spring for sure and grabbing all the merch!

This baby blue number for The British Airways is just the beginning.
