Central LDN.

Yesterday I had a lovely girly day with my mother by taking the train down to central London where we both exited at Piccadilly Circus and found ourselves situated at the bottom of Regent Street.

I absolutely adore travelling to central London just to experience everything around me, the beautiful architecture, the amazing stores and brilliant atmosphere London has to offer is just so special.

Whilst in London I was lucky enough to come across the new red London buses!! And I must say, they are beautiful! I just love the way they have epitomised both a traditional and new feel into one iconic object. It has a sleek and unique look to it and yet a spectator can still see characteristics from its old ancestors, which I think is an igneous idea.

Upfragmented

Upfragmented is one of my greatest achievements created at university. We worked alongside a great company called Co-oproduct as part of an upcycling project, which encouraged us to venture out into the world to collect used items and create a new product out of them.

This whole experience was a great eye opener as it allowed us to take part in various experimental procedures in order to find the right material to make a new product. I absolutely loved trying out new methods with items I would never have thought to use before…like putting polystyrene cups into the oven, or disfiguring an entire milk bottle in the oven due to the high heat. It was such an amazing thing to witness and document on as it just shows that these materials still have life in them…although the product inside them has completely finished, the packaging hasn’t.

Through the process of experimenting I found that I was deeply drawn to using glass due to its aesthetics and how dangerous it was. Having never worked with glass before I was determined to learn and produce something out of this amazing material.

Upfragmented is made out of reclaimed furniture and used wine bottles shards that were dipped and set into bio-resin.

Upfragmented can now be found on the Co-oproduct website, which also fully explains how I made this stool.
