If you are moved by colour you will be blown away with the pictures from leading fashion photographer Kristian Schuller. Works of art in their own right they have the most marvelous mix of colour. A true inspiration for the use of colour and the powdery tones would be amazing applied in most contexts.

He studied fashion design with Vivienne Westwood and photography with FC Gundlach at the University of Fine Arts Berlin.

Christmas wreath

Inspired by cool and clean winter trends a wreath to grace home. Wreaths are a warm welcome for your guests and they really say something about you. Be it sleek and sparkly or rustic and natural its a great way to add personality to you festive decor.

I opted for a rustic theme with a white colour pallet.

Start by spraying the pieces you are going to use ,it helps if you have already wired them . 

Make a simple wreath shape by twisting some twigs together and wire them into shape. Add a few fresh roses and you are good to go.

Fasten onto the twigs a half ball of dry oasis and start adding all your treasures. Find your own style as this is part of the fun. You will soon have something that will be a gem for your own door,or where ever you hang it. You can make several and hang them on chair backs at you christmas dinner table.

David Roberts is one of the most significant ceramic artists working in Europe today. A distinguished English potter, he has an international reputation as a leading practitioner in Raku ceramics: a technique with its origin in small-scale vessels made for the Tea Ceremony in late sixteenth-century Japan. Roberts is acknowledged as responsible for the introduction and promotion of modern, large scale Raku in Europe. He has also been instrumental in its re-introduction to the United States of America, where his example has played a key role in the foundation of the ‘Naked Raku’ movement. In his personal exploration of this traditional technique, Roberts has transformed it into a vibrant and contemporary art form.

David Roberts is one of the first British ceramists to specialise in high quality contemporary Raku, the making of which he has helped popularise, as a serious discipline within contemporary British ceramics in the many exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations he has held throughout the UK, Europe and the USA. His work investigates the clay bodies interaction with smoke-marking and deep carbonisation. The resulting vessels are strongly evocative of David’s increasing engagement with the natural world and the contours and stratification of stone and landscape.
