ALWAYS THE WAY

Seeing as my blogging output is practically nil these days - I'm really busy and Dad has taken to sending me texts - I was considering putting my blog on permanent stop. Until I went in for the usual first check of the day internet trawl reviewing all my favourite china spots, when I came across this website FULL of the most amazing 1930's German airbrush ceramic from an avid collector. SO BEAUTIFUL!! Which drives me to share with you all someone else's obsession.



Here is the background to this kind of ceramic decoration from my favourite online translator translation2.paralink.com

The 20s of the last century were marked by the belief in the technical-industrial progress which progressed with 7 miles boots.

Creativity, Progressivität and tempo were mainsprings of the time, after one of the chapters darkest up to now, the First World War.

Also in the art one looked for new expression means which could do the time taste best of all widergeben, were useable rationally and even though provided the breath of the special.
Cubism, Konstruktivismus, Suprematismus, De Stijl, new professionalism, Bauhaus - the list of the concepts tied up with this short period can be extended with famous representatives of the single types: El Lissitzky, Kandinski, Theo van Doesburg, Johannes Itten or Moholy-Nagy.
In the area of the ceramic art came along, e.g., Trude Petri, Martha Katzer, to Paul Speck, Herman Gretsch and Artur Hennig a name.

The hose procedure not new in itself experienced in the relatively short phase of six to eight years a Renaissance. (About in 1926-1933).
The technology known about since 1890 spends colored ornaments on the already dry shards by means of an Aerographen (airbrush).
One worked either freehand or with the help of stencils.
Rational work and individual artistic freedom went thus on ideal Wise hand to hand.

For relatively few money stamped, so-called lower layers could get from economic depression and beginning mass unemployment the big wide (art) welt in the sitting room.
Geometrical ornaments and Dekore, on ceramics and porcelain, tin cans, wallpaper and textiles took up the use of forms of the leading artists of the past, before these were edged out after 1933, outlawed as an ungerman, of the "little litter flower" with all power in the homely (uncanny) residential worlds again.

MANAGING WORK AND PLAY

I cannot thank my lucky stars enough to be as busy as I am with two great jobs and happy people at all of them. It is a bit exhasting fitting everything in - I schlep across town everyday and have my lunchbreak on the 242 bus. I don't have time any more to stand outaide the Apple Store and suck my boyfriend's face off like a couple I just gaffawed at from the top of the C2, or wander round town after work in search of un peche mignon. And I really have to make a huge concerted effort not to take piles of work home with me cause maths spaghetti is really fun! Not sure I think it should be more fun than CSI but we are mid seasons. The most fun I have though is like CSI: cooking big family dinners.

And I still like major league gossip. I have some great stories lately - mostly involving myself that result in the edifying experience of having my face stuck on the front of a giant pink plushy horse straddling a heater but as I'm oN my phone I have to keep it short.

My favourite one lately though I heard is that XXCENSOREDXX said that everything a prolific UK DJ and producer (all over a Flickr page near you) makes is totally mediocre. I really laughed cause that is a potential shit storm igniter followed by a long dark ice age across club land that would take eons to thaw.

One day on the weekend working. In trouble for being a professional shopper with my boyfriend. Had a brilliant day though with two friends in the Selfridges sale. Marni shirt and shorts and a Jil Sander shirt for him. Two gingerbeers and olives for the girls. Bad vibes in one of my works cause people aren't getting on. So draining. A bit uncomfortable. Had brilliant afternoon tea with two yesterday and Mrs Marengo's cupcakes. God what am I even bullshitting about? Forget my whole life. Plastic box.

FROM THE DESK OF A LIONESS

The Parisian Jew once said that I react like a lioness who protects her cubs when he made some joke about someone close to me. I have realised that he was very accurate. Someone who should be left to stew in their own shit storm - and who if the lady Gang knew would throw me from the coven - well... Whatever. Some habits are heard to break. Basically as Max used to say 'You don't fuck with Davo'. Or as the Little Witch says 'Don't mess with the Big Witch or she'll cast a spell on you.'

MASSIVE LOLS


Mark and Philippa, originally uploaded by Mrs Gorman.

Here is a great picture of Mark Eley and The Cardinal. There are only three people who know why this is so bangingly hilarious.



We were all at Urban Outfitters Oxford Street where the party swas hosted for the UK launch party for Keanan Duffty’s new book Rebel Rebel Anti Style. The usual suspect connection there was Paul Gorman and Mrs G and Jenny. Paul Gorman is really knocking those books out! [Well he wasn't entirely responsible for the latest one, but I am sure he has to sharpen his pencil regularly no matter how many people are collaborating.]



After that, Cards and I went to our regular Soho haunt Dehesa - and shame we had to wait 30 minutes for a table so it was a Gold Digger and a Fame and Fortune with the ever present club footed slice of lemon on top of the beers from the launch and then a bottle of wine polished off over dinner. Top secret girl talk and I couldn't even tell you if I wanted to - I was so pissed by then I can;'t even remember. There was some discussion about laser hair removal, a painting as if it were spiritual essence [LOL] and a lot of talk about Bette. But honestly... Allah... it was just too much fun. And a bit woosy feeling the next day.

Oh yeah and update on the plumbing at The Frenchman's house - with the help pf a MONSTER-TOOL.COM plunger, the kitchen sink now drains and I am super thrilled to be able to do the dishes at his again. In between working on my painting of the Lektrolab Ladies.

Had a brief phone chat with an old friend today who was feeling a bit rubbish. He broke up with his girlf. I feel sorry for him. But yerrr Karma mate. KARMA. For his and the sheila involved...

In other news, OSL.LAMEATNAMES.COMis still going really well. Our posts are going slower cause we are spending more time actually creating material to go on there. Valeria and I are spending a part of each day at working trying to talk Monika and Samantha into modelling. Sam is a natural and Monika has a big black hairy dog. Next time the boss is out for a few days I'm gonna get one of them spread eagle on the desk'

The Frenchman is home so au revoir!

Bisous.

FOR REFERENCE

In case I ever need to perform emergency surgery.

Went and saw Bette today. She was excited when I arrived cause she thought I was Philippa, then she just went crazy all over the flat like a total retard cause she's a small kitten. Then she sat and watched me do a wee, so to distract her cause it was unnerving I have her a square of toilet paper and she totally wrestled it to the ground. Then she turned her nose up and fresh biscuits and water - well the old biscuits were hardly touched - so I decided to give her some wet food - couldn't find a suitable plate so decided to use one of Philippa's good spotty ones. If they are good enough for us, then they are good enough for her.

When I left, she was so busy eating, Bette didn't even turn to say good bye. And I had even cleaned her shit house a bit for her. So unloving.

YADA YADA

Tonight with the Cardnal we saw Mr and Mrs Gorman, I tried to poach Cup of Tea under her vosses nose - only I dodnt see her boss cause she is so short (embarrassing) but then I rubbed her other bosses belly and told him he still doesn't have a tummy like Teki and Caz called me a feeder and I said yes, and he said he met the Cardinal before and she said no but then she told me that he recognised her cause I sent him a string of pictures woth the intent he'd ask her out on a date which never happed but I nearly pissed myself tonight and where was Pippa and Sarah I don't know but I agreed to my first painting commission of The Gorman Family (headed by Rita) pretty nerve qracking but I might try.

APRÉS FISH FINGER SANDWICH

I had dinner with my friend who likes to ride a white saddle. I had such a wonderful and lovely time with him. He might be a guy and inflicted with all the failings that such comes with such a genetic fault from birth, otherwise he is a pretty top person. Another human I will add to my "I'm such a lucky person" list.

Got some great gossip: a mutual friend said he thinks I am a babe. Feeling is mutual!

NICE.

PENIS POWER

Something Mum and I were talking about on the phone made me think of this old video and send her the link. So, lets go back in time and watch this video and reminisce about one of the greatest moments in YouTube history.

NOT BAD


mom and oscar1, originally uploaded by Dave Nimitz.

Pretty good dog with laser eyes and the t-shirt says it all.

Felt sick yesterday but okay today until I went to The Elk In The Woods for dinner in Angel and had the grossest food in a long time. Wasn't worth complaining about - not rotten or anything like that - just who ever prepared the plate and presented it must have used their left foot and the pork belly was intensely... BLUBBERY is the only word I can think of to describe it. The "Apple Salad" was a floury apple in slices on a tumbled mess of lettuce and chicory. With a relish from a can. So horrible. Black list.
