‘MADE’ craft fair London

Great Craft Fair
Great Craft Fair – Amanda Anderson’s Mosaics

MADE, the Design and Craft Fair held this autumn 22-25 October at One Marylebone, NW1 4AQ, was full of a wide variety of items to suit every taste. I particularly liked Amanda Anderson’s Mosaics and Jeff Soan’s  segmented animals but was tempted by something on almost every stand.
Great for early Christmas shopping – the MADE Spring Show April 29th to May 1st is due to be held in Bloomsbury.

Danny Lane’s Glass Staircase at the V&A, London

This fabulous staircase is in the glass gallery on the 4th floor just in front of the Members Room where we assembled for the Members Tour last Wednesday.

Designed by the American artist, Danny Lane , the pillars are composed of glass tiles assembled so that each is slightly rotated on the one below so that the whole structure glitters.

The V&A also has daily tours  – I really must put one in my diary. I have been coming to the V&A since forever but there are always rooms I didn’t know were there.
