On the weekend

I popped into the Contemporary Applied Arts Gallery whilst wandering from Regents Park, to South Bank killing time a few weekends ago. Enjoyed a root around in their shop's collection downstairs. It's funny how you get drawn to your favourite artists, with some maker's aesthetics being so distinct.

I really like how much Lina Peterson seems to take so much joy in her use of colour and material, and although I'm usually more drawn to her work involving stitch and textiles, there were some newer rather understated plastic broaches in the cabinet I would of like to have been able to look at up close.
