BIRD OF THE DAY






Anna-Wili Highfield is a Sydney based artist currently making sculptures of animals from paper and from copper pipe. The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings. We just think they look fantastic!

CUTTING BOARDS


We just got the Cutting Boards in stock this week. And they are now available in our webshop or in a store near you.

For these Cutting Boards we found inspiration from our own city. If you go to the top of Rundetårn in the middle of Copenhagen you will have an amazing view of the city and all the tile roofs. The new oak cutting boards are our version of the Copenhagen roof tops. Place them next to each other and create a wooden skyline in your kitchen – that way you turn a practical item into a decoration in an instant.

The Cutting Boards come in four different sizes and are made of oiled oak.

AFTERNOON CAKE


Perfect for a Friday afternoon where the rain is pouring down. Rhubarb cake and a cup of coffee served in our Family Dinner Bowl and Small Cup. Yummi...

Recipe:

900g rhubarb

50g caster sugar

For the crumble

225g plain wholemeal flour

2 tsp baking powder

175g soft butter (or vegan margarine)

175g sugar

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/ gas mark 6. Trim the rhubarb, and strip off any stringy bits of skin that come away from the sides. Cut the rhubarb into 2.5cm pieces and place these in a shallow casserole. Sprinkle over the caster sugar.

Now make the crumble: sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl or food processor (adding any bran left in the sieve). Add the butter (or vegan margarine) and rub in with your fingertips or process until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Mix in the demerara sugar. Spoon the crumble on top of the rhubarb, covering it completely, otherwise the rhubarb juices will bubble through the gaps and turn the topping soggy. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is crisp and lightly browned, and the rhubarb tender.
