Gilding the Lily - again.

I used this phrase a few times on my blog to describe how the various partnerships of Powell/Bishop/Stonier piled on the trademarks and pattern marks etc on the bottoms of plates etc - perhaps in a state of paranoia of being copied, or perhaps in pride at their creations!? I happened across this image of two tazzas made by one incarnation of the factory ( i don't know who exactly) and was struck by the very literal example of the phrase.

About Me

My photo
Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
