London Artists’ Studio Tour 25th Anniversary

PrintWe’re proud to again be a part of this year’s London Artists’ Studio Tour. This year marks 25 years of “studio touring” in London.

We’ve had a busy winter, with lots of big projects and renovations to our new (old) home – but we have still managed to be able to make a number of great pieces for you to view (and take home). This year, you can come by and see our new studio – it’s in the garage/shop of our home. (It’s an odd room – it served for many years as the office of a home based plumbing contractor. When we moved in there were heaps of antique plumbing fixtures everywhere, an old desk and even an old large bank safe. The pictures pinned up on the walls have been there for many, many decades.)

We would love to see you all, if you can make it out for the Tour. It runs from Friday, April 20th, through to Sunday April 22nd. Here is a the tour Website, if you need any further details.

Project at the Children’s Museum

We were asked to do some  murals at the Children’s Museum here in London. Our dentists, Christy and Brock Nicolucci (Nicolucci Dentistry) were looking for a way of supporting the Children’s Museum and decided they’d like to have a mural/display done in the “Street Where You Live” section at the Museum – it’s the area where kids get to pretend to be Firefighters or work in the supermarket, all in “kid-sized” buildings.

We originally agreed to do the painted aspect, but after a last minute change of plans we were drafted to build the “facade” as well. So Peter built the structure of the dentist office and the furniture inside, and Corinne painted the exterior and interior. Dr Christy supplied the Dental chair, in a jazzy red tone and all the other dental related bits.

The build itself was pretty straightforward, although our recent move has made working in our new shop a bit of a pain (we just moved everything into the shop and it’s really cluttered and not set up for work yet). Corinne of  course had no trouble with the mural work – painting is what we do, after all.

We’re quite happy with the results, and hope children can continue to enjoy it for many years to come.
