Day of the Dead Wallpaper

13 Apr

I am so proud of my friend Emily in not only designing, but also producing, this incredible wallpaper inspired by Mexican sugar skulls. Super chic.

Day-of-the-Dead-Sugar-Skull-Wallpaper-1

The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, where this folkloric skull is a ‘Memento Mori’ and has become an iconic symbol of life and death.

In this unique wallpaper, the intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior.
Technical Information:

Roll size: 10m x 52cm
Pattern repeat: 53cm
Made in the UK

Famous Skulls

25 Apr

These skull drawings from Romanian artist Istvan Laszlo are a work of macabre beauty – at first glance they look like anatomically correct skull drawings but then you realize despite being ‘just skull’ they remind you of someone. They are in fact a series of ‘Famous Skulls’ which represent everyone from Hiltler to Warhol.

The show called the Anatomy of Skulls was shown at the Sebastian Guinness Gallery last year. Enjoy – these are brilliant!


Chocolate cast from human skulls

4 Feb

I have been lucky enough to be speaking to the amazing Marina Malvada, who I hope will be working with me on the Edible Autopsy, making us an entire 100% anatomically correct chocolate skeleton. Her work blows me away and it is indeed hard to believe that of of the below are 100% chocolate which has been cast from a real human skull. I LOVE THESE – they are both delicious and macabre so right up my street. At some point in 2011 I HAVE to find a way to have one of these beauties in my life…
