There is a lovely piece about Rob's show at Charleston Gallery, on Spitalfields Life. Beautifully written, as always, and with photographs that make me want to jump on the train immediately and get back down there.
You can read the the whole thing, and previous posts about Rob if you click here!
The collection of mugs available in the shop, which are all printed by hand in the studio, is growing ever bigger. A bit like our range of tiles, which is pretty huge now.
This weekend we had a few new 'ASTONISH ME!' mugs, in various shades of blue and some just in black.

There is, as always, such a lot going on. Rob's show in Charleston has been extended until October 28th, the work for the show in New York is all in crates and ready to go and the most incredible paper cut for the show in Manchester is about to be framed.
In between time everyone at the studio tries very hard to provide one or two new things for the shop each week. Sometimes it's a brand new print or piece of ceramics, and sometimes it might be a card, a mug or cushion in a new colourway. The cards we sell are all hand screen printed, cut, folded and packaged in the studio. The tiles, mugs, money boxes, egg cups and plates are all printed by hand, as are the bags and cushions. A real labour of love!
Most of the things we have in the shop are either signed and numbered limited editions, very small runs or complete one off's. At the moment we also have these, a handful of plates in sampled colours.

Just a reminder that if you are in New York later this month, be sure to stop by Rob's show in Broome Street.
The exhibition will include the beautiful paper cuts featured in the calendar recently published by Rizzoli, and a series of screen prints.
A very special portfolio box set of 12 signed and numbered limited edition prints are available to buy NOW!! from TAG FINE ARTS.

We are delighted to have a fabulous new neighbour next door to us in Columbia Road.
This is the very lovely Julia in her shop Choosing Keeping which opened just last weekend.
Julia sells carefully selected stationery products from around the world. Beautiful fountain pens, unusual pencils and incredibly desirable pencil sharpeners, including my favourite, a small brass sharpener that you can adjust according to how wide your pencil is and comes in it's own little leather case! There are all kinds of notebooks, paperweights with floating dandelions, and a small but thoughtful selection of books.
If you can't make it to Columbia Road, Choosing Keeping will also be selling online very soon.
Welcome to Columbia Road Julia. We wish you much success!
