A moment of pride to share.

I was recently invited to take part in the new redesign of some of the bedrooms- the attic rooms at The Battersea Arts Centre.

My task, requested by Mydd a super creative (& one of the nicest people you could ever meet) who lives in Cornwall was to design a sleeve for a 12″ vinyl record which holds safe all sorts of sound treasures recorded by sound artist Ciaran Clarke, words of Cornwall, people talking & our beautiful beaches.

I took inspiration from the lines drawn on our sand after a high tide, the knotted ropes curled in bundles in every Cornish harbour & the room itself- how it might feel at the end of the day in Battersea, London when you have creatively given all you can give, to lie on the bed & listen to these sounds.

I’m so pleased with the result, it was cut & printed by hand & I felt extremely proud to watch it go off with them today from the start of their launch procession at the Hall for Cornwall, landing this evening by train before  marching the rest of the way to Battersea.
