This free exhibition 'Make Do and Mend' (13 June - 8 Noember 2009) at the V&A Museum of Childhood was really inspiring as artists and school children turned old items into beautiful objects anyone would love in their home. I found the lampshades above really interesting because of the amount of lamps, placement and the bright clashing colours. I was really interested in the beetle chairs and crockery called 'Bugged' 2009 by Lou Rota. They were really fun, quirky and play with what you would normally consider grotesque and especially not want to find on your plate. I have found her work for sale on http://www.notonthehighstreet.com/lourota with plates from only £25.
