Foundary Truck

Possibly the most heavy duty foundary cart we have ever seen rolled into our east london workshop this morning. Here is a sneak preview.

It will make an astounding vintage industrial centre piece.

Keep an eye on the new arrivals page on our website where it will be posted when complete - if it isn't purchased before.

This cast iron industrial relic is one of the more unusual pieces we have seen this year.

Once upon a time it would have been driven by a belt in a Lancashire saw mill. Now destined to be a decorative merchandising piece for a vintage clothes store.

Norman Ackroyd's Open Studio

We were invited by our friend Norman Ackroyd RA to share a mince pie at his open studio event  last weekend.

His print studio is spread over the two lower floors of a ramshackle converted Victorian factory building in Southwark. It is a great space. Aside from the display of his delicate and refined etchings and paintings we were particularly impressed with his cast-iron printing presses on the ground floor. Well-oiled and still working.

Norman's studio is full of rare objects. Our eyes caught a few of them and they are for us a real source of inspiration...Here they are scattered on improvised shelves inbetween bits and bobs. Can you spot them?
