V&A 'Cherry on the Cake'


The ‘Cherry on the Cake’ range is the V&A’s designer collection, and
represents the best of the best in its shops. It brings together
designers, ideas and products in a collection of exclusive editions to
match the diversity, originality and quality of the V&A itself.
The third 'Cherry on the Cake' collection, focuses on paper and brings
with it a resurgence of interest in the medium, the collection includes
traditional printmaking, paper engineering, typography and paper-cut
techniques.
I have been invited as one a group of 12 artists whose working practice
has an affinity to the Museum to produce a piece for this new Paper
collection. The other artists are Aardvark, Fred Butler, Nina Chakrabarti,
D-BROS, Lisa Jones, Ed Kluz, Angie Lewin, Charlotte Mann, Tom Martin,
Rob Ryan and Chisato Tamabayashi.
Check out the whole range on display in the V&A Shop and online at
www.vandashop.com from the 15th September.
My contribution was to illustrate the William Morris quote;
"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful."
