Cinema and Culinary Typography

During “the gap” (the time between Christmas and New Year) the Streeten Kamlish family arrived with a brilliant gift made by our niece, Sophie Kamlishbaywatch.
This provided the house party with an entertaining ‘game’ to play of matching herbs with films, followed up with a package that arrived from them in January, in time for John’s birthday…herbs

‘THE WHEELIE THING’ Kitchen Design Must-Have!

For some years I’ve had problems with our collection of spices, They’re stuffed in a cupboard and I can’t ever find the ones I need. I hanker after a spice rack, but know too well the style police won’t allow such a sin, even ironically. Over the Christmas hols, John knocked up this utterly brilliant “Wheelie Thing” which also holds our cleaning stuff too.

Like many things in our home, it’s recycled from materials John has used in previous art installations. The Wheelie Thing is adapted from  ‘Twilight Shift’ Shillam + Smith3, London  2005 
See how easy it is for me to identify the spice I need
You want one? Bespoke…it will wow your friends and improve the quality of your life in the kitchen. Quickly view it in action below and then drop me an email to find out about commissioning one!
