You can now get some of Charley Harper‘s wonderful mid-century illustrations for your home too, thanks to a range by Fishs Eddy. This display-worthy Flamboyant Feathers ceramic platter is one of the pieces on offer.
Do you want your kids to know their Alexander Calder from their Alexander Girard? Well, rather than giving them too long a lecture in the history of design, try this Kid Made Modern book. Written by Todd Oldham it uses mid-century designers as the starting base for 52 different craft projects for kids. It details how to make a cardboard fort inspired by Luis Barragan or window decorations in the style of Russel Wright or even decorate a few wooden spoons to create an alternative version of the Girard dolls.
The projects look so much fun you may find yourself joining in!
