  • Ter·rar·i·um

    Posted on 20/03/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    Our collection of Terrariums are now available!

    Terrari-What? Terrariums are defined as "a glass container, chiefly or wholly enclosed, for growing and displaying plants'. Otherwise neatly described as an indoor greenhouse or a pimped up planter.

    These glass sculptures are perfect for a stylish botanical display. The meeting of glass, solder and geometric forms along with plants is stunning. Terrariums are satisfying to plant too, choosing and arranging your plants is fun. Watch out for the non-threatening circle shaped cacti, it's orange furry exterior hides the fact it will plant a hundred tiny needles in your fingers!

    Our terrariums are hand crafted in the UK and are available in two colour finishes, black or copper. The Pyramid and Cube shapes are pictured in black finnish.

    The Teardrop and Triangle shapes are designed with a ring for hanging (pictured in the copper finnish).

    You can purchase our Terrariums here.

  • Fresh Art

    Posted on 27/02/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    We are very pleased to be stocking the work of Spanish artist Eduardo Barba. On top of designing excellent art, Barba is an architect specialising in the restoration and reinvention of old buildings. He combines his architectural perspective with graphic design to communicate ideas and storys that he can't develop in his buildings. A fascination with simple geometric shapes and different methods of organising information such as charts and maps run through his work.

    Bold and beautiful, just the way we like it. You can buy prints here.

  • A Very Secret Artist

    Posted on 21/11/2012 by A Rum Fellow

    These are not computer designed but the amazing hand drawn artwork of American Eugene Andolsek. The intensely colourful and intricate works were created by Andolsek starting in the 1950's as a calming pastime. Using a black pen, graph paper, a compass and coloured markers he created piece after piece without even considering them as art. It wasn't until the end of his life that a care worker found his trove of incredible work and brought it to wider attention. Just before his death in 2008 Eugene Andolsek's work was part of an exhibition at the American Folk Art Museum. Over a 60 year period he produced around 2000 works which had never been on display, just hidden away in cupboards and old trunks. He was a truly secret artist.

    You can read and view more of his work here.

  • A little preview of some Rugs we have collected- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    Posted on 16/05/2012 by A Rum Fellow

    We stumbled across this array of floor rugs in arguably one of the worlds most stunning cities (miles of sandy beaches flanked in by dramatic mountains makes a good argument) -Rio de Janeiro. The designer uses a similar technique to what you may know as 'rag rugs' with the weaving together of recycled fabric off cuts. This collection have a modern twist in the design with geometric intarsia patterns woven in using carefully selected colour combinations. Wooden floors are calling..
