A visit to the Pear-ly gates



Never a good place to have to visit, the Pear-ly gates, and far from finding St. Peter in the vicinity I find the unmistakable signs of Jon Mills and the fruit of his labours.

Without wishing to express sour grapes, he no doubt  pipped someone more able, (like myself (ahem!)) to the post; what next Mr Mills? I’m shocked to the core. What other fruit and veg can you imagine adorning public buildings? If anyone was interested they would bother to read your blog:


and then your apple-cart would be well and truly upset….


Jubilation!! Heads up!


Heads up!

Mr Watt crosses town from Mile Oak Library to Brighton’s main library in Jubilee Street. His head is full of the objects made for his latest book “The Lost Factories”,26-octadjust

and is accompanied by the ‘Lost Factory finger post’ complete with video of the story:


Watt’s in his head! See if you can see the objects used in the story, inside the Mr.Watt head.

I don’t think so, thank you very much.

An Elephant boot scraper….

Well… you wont get much good luck if you come knocking on MY door Mr Mills….
