With Love & Best Wishes

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Spinning plates here. So many things in the pipeline, so many ideas moving through and taking shape – so many things to consider, remember, factor in. There is a vast difference between design and manufacture, and as wide a gulf again between manufacture and marketing. How our little Clarity Crew manages to pull this off week on week, month on month, year on year, is quite astounding. It ain’t easy, I know that for…

New York New York

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Thought we’d take a whistlestop trip to New York. Here are a few snapshots from our last visit to see Grace in 2019. Check out the mural… Here’s a skyline of Manhattan from the water, …and here’s the lady herself. Coming into port, and the Freedom Tower literally towers above you. It’s a powerful reminder of what man is totally capable of. Destroying and rebuilding alike. New York . A fascinating place. Packed with…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Went to the office today for a design meeting with Lovely Lucy and Lisa. Great session. I love working with two such creative, switched on, easy going women.

Always such magnificent and original art. More will be revealed. And…

Honesty.

Honesty.

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Been poodling around the house today, cooking, cleaning, ironing and just generally catching up with domestic chores. This kind of productive yet not particularly mentally taxing activity leaves the mind free to wander and ponder, don’t you find? And that is precisely what mine did. Without even leaving the kitchen, I managed in a very short space of time to get all riled and caught up in the corruption and devious, manipulative behaviour of…
