May was a busy month, not only did I install my first window display, I also completed some work for Sony Playstation at The Great Hall, Wembley Stadium for the Champions league final. Very exciting job and was great to be involved in something big. The biggest mission on this one…..trying to find pantone referenced shoe laces….on a tight deadline….not particularly easy! Got there in the end.
So the brief was to complete large laced Sony Playstation themed words on various walls, all different colours within the Great Hall. Here are some pictures…..created using screws and coloured shoelaces.
Yet again I am a bit late with my news, but things have just been manic this summer. Installing this, installing that, here there and everywhere and also I became an aunty…..which I’m sure you know is extremely time consuming!! Anyways, lets get to business. Back in May I installed a window display at Neville Johnson’s new flagship store at 3 Wigmore Street, London. Being a Manchester based company, the brief was to merge Manchester and London into a window display. But the real mission on this one was to make a double sided piece, viewable from both inside and outside……so I have created the window display on lots of cubes and boxes…..like massive grown up building blocks!! Window is still installed for your viewing pleasure, but if you don’t get to see it here are some pics
and some inside shots….
Nearly forgot about this it was so long ago……completed a commission for The New York Times T Magazine back in 2009 and only today have a realised they published it late last year in T Design Fall 2010. Now the task is trying to get my hand on a back issue…..hhhmmmm.
Here’s a couple of screen grabs of the issue

After a long week of pinning and threading, I finally completed Fly away home, but not without the pinning expertise of my boyfriend, who I ended up roping in last minute to help me meet the deadline. So before I commence showing you the finished piece, I would like to say a big Thank You to Zac. Other people I would like to thank are the staff at the Museum in the Park, Lizzi Walton and also Imelda Hughes for accompanying me to the opening of SIT, introducing me to a lot of lovely people and making it an altogether more fun experience.
So without further ado, here’s some images of Fly away Home which is part of the Exhibition WORDPLAY at the Museum in the Park, Stroud.
