  • Sand + Art + Sunshine

    Posted on 30/01/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    The grey of winter is making me dream of balmy days and bright sunshine. Perhaps a perfect mix of sunshine, beautiful coastline, and brilliant artwork all into one? Well there are artists around who are doing just this. These artists create huge artworks in the sand, making geometric and organic pieces. I love that the work lasts as long as the tide is out, all that creative effort goes into a momentary masterpiece.  Sam Dougados from France was winner of the 2012 sand art championship in Jersey. He approaches his work from a relaxed stand point, in most cases designing the piece as he goes along.

    Andres Amador from the USA incorporates the geography of a location within his designs.

    Swedish artist Gunilla Klingberg has a more hightech approach using a huge moulded roller attached to a tractor to cover large area in an intricate pattern.   

    Andy Coutanche's tool of choice is his grandfathers 100 year old rake which he wields to  create intricate designs, some reminiscent of crop circle patterns.

  • New Cushions!

    Posted on 12/01/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    We have brand new A Rum Fellow cushions in store. These mountain cushions are made using the most intricately hand woven textiles found in the mountains of Peru. The incredible skill of traditional weavers starts with hours of careful planning, with hundreds of coloured threads it is an impossible task for anyone but the most highly skilled of weavers.

    It takes weeks to produce the highly ornate patterns in the traditional method with painstaking attention to detail. The weavers of these textiles are true artists who pass on their cultural heritage within the story of the weave. 

    See the cushions in-store here.

  • Elephant Family

    Posted on 14/12/2012 by A Rum Fellow

    I had the enormous pleasure of a Christmas feast with all the lovely people at Elephant Family last night. The charity works to protect Indian elephants and conserve their habitats. They do the most creative and wonderful campaigns raising awareness and funds through exciting public art events. Having already brightened up London with Elephant Parade and The Big Egg Hunt, they have something very special up their sleeve for this summer. Check out the Elephant Family website, sign the petition and support their important cause!

    A huge thank you to Ruth Powys and Mahout Mark Shand for hosting a splendid evening!
