Stuart Haygarths work has been been all over blogland lately - and I have to post about it too - because it´s so unique. The Tide chandelier is created from clear and translucent objects, primarily made of plastic -all found by Stuart Haygarth at the coastline of Kent.
DUNGENESS ( work in progress)
I have been collecting man-made debris from the Dungeness coastline in Kent over many years. I am sorting and categorizing the mass of objects and from each grouping creating a piece of work. The finished pieces take different forms such as sculptural & functional objects and photographic documentation.
So far I have completed two works. The first being ‘Tide Mark’ (2004) which is both an installation piece and a photographic work. Tide Mark is a collection of primarily plastic objects categorized by colour. Starting with white objects and ending with black, a kind of tide mark through the colour spectrum is produced.
The second work is the ‘Tide’ Chandelier (2005) which is created from a collection of clear and translucent plastic objects.

There´s also a blog in Danish - but I hope you will enjoy it just the same. I´ll post some pictures of the calender soon just because I´m so pleased with how it came out. It will be for sale at the group show - and I´m planning to organize a little give-away also...

My daughter´s kindergarden is another local spot where I get inspired! It looks very fancy from the outside - and inside it´s full of great childrens drawings that makes you smile. Nanna is more a painter than a drawer so I enjoy to snap mobile pics of the others drawings. Notice the cribs at the top floor it´s open air - since in DK most kids are napping outside in their cribs or prams.

I´m not sure how much longer I can resist from buying this Pinocchio carpet from Hay for Nanna´s room - since I pass it in a shop window almost every day. But as they say in Pinocchio "Money doesn´t grow on trees" - but the colours and the texture is just sooooo yummy!
I´ve never seen the Disney version of Pinocchio but "Le avventure di Pinocchio" (1972), an TV mini-series by Italian director Luigi Comencini, starring Andrea Balestri as Pinocchio, Nino Manfredi as Geppetto & Gina Lollobrigida as the Fairy - is probably the movie that has stuck with me for the longest time since I saw it as a child - and I´m sure it´s still worth seeing if you can find it.
