36. Napkin Diary For November 2014




All of my work is numbered. This piece is 612. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about each daily entry on the napkin.

If You Are New Here:

I like to make art from stuff nobody else wants. Stuff from the bin. Stuff with a secret history.

I absolutely never cut up books which could otherwise be read, or clothes which could otherwise be worn. Nor, do I erase the blemishes left by life. I cherish life’s blemishes.

A few years back, I bought six vintage linen napkins in a charity shop, for the meagre sum of two pounds. So far, I have turned three of my napkins into sewn diaries, using fast food leaflets, old magazines and books.

Each of my napkins represents a month, with a different entry for each day. For example, the day Lynda Bellingham died, I added the Oxo box from my kitchen cupboard.

November is my fourth napkin, the others are June, May and October. Some of them can be found in my shop.

    • Sorry you had to register, Tina. No idea why you needed to do that as you’ve been commenting on my blog from the start. I have changed nothing, except about a month ago I paid to have the adverts removed. Don’t know if that has something to do with it.

      I’m hoping to take one of them to a framer’s in town next week, so I will get in touch to see if you are free. No worries if not, it could be quite short notice. We will sort something out, anyway.
