Feb's Top 5

This month I started at the Hive its really interesting being back in a Uni environment. This got me thinking about the good old days at Uni and I hoiked out some old sketch books. I started reading and gradually all this art theory about the placement and value of objects came back to me.
So this month I’ve done some shots of my favourite things of this month I hope you like it because I’m going to do it every month!!!!

Honest words:
I was 21 and I climbed a REALLY big mountain in Canada with this mad man. I cursed all the way to the top and when I reached the top I remember having this complete moment of calm, every little bit of my life made sense for one second (then I had to climb back down!). Since then there are very few things that can recreate that feeling but not to sound to cheesy King Creosote and Jon Hopkins gig on Tuesday night did this. I was mesmerised and bewitched by Jon Hopkin’s instromentship (I think I made that word up) and Kenny Anderson’s beautiful voice. Even the most hectic of days could not take my mind of this gig.
Go and buy this album its beautiful.

The fish slice of wonder:
I broke my fish slice 6 months ago and have found it hard to replace. It has to be suitable for none stick pans, have the correct bendiness but also enough rigidity to flip and egg easy over and quite frankly this is hard to find. But IKEA have solved the problem and now I can fry my eggs easy over with out popping them (thank the lord!).

Soda Bread:
Easy, quick and good for you. I’m trying to sort my diet out and eat more breakfast, so seeded soda bread is my savior. With soup, stew or honey it’s all good!

Honey that money can’t buy:
I like honey but I don’t love it, until now! Honey that money can’t buy, was a gift from the talented Alison at Every day Angels. You have never tried honey until you have tried this honey! Amazingly complex flavor,(like wine) it had had subtle floral tones and some thing of the freshly cut grass about it.

Finally the pot that went wrong!
The other day I was in a bit of a daze and glazed my earthenware pot with a stoneware glaze usually I would be gutted but I really like the finish. I think I’m going to hang it up in my new house!
