A new departure for 2012. My work on eBay.


With my drawers and cupboards overflowing with work such as this, and the larder looking more and more like that of Mother Hubbard, this step seems the obvious way to redress the balance.  Aaah!

As an experiment, from time to time I shall be posting the odd piece on eBay. 

This very topical piece was made in November last, in response to The Press coverage of the “Occupy” Movement.

When will the time come when honest and clear seeing men will grow sick of all this chaos of waste, this robbing of Peter to pay Paul, which is the essence of Commercial war?
When shall we band together to replace the system whose motto is ” The devil take the hindmost ” with a system whose motto shall be really and without qualification
” One for all and all for one “?
Who knows but the time may be at hand, but that we now living may see the beginning of that end which shall extinguish luxury and poverty? When the upper, middle and lower classes shall have melted into one class, living contentedly a simple and happy life.

Wm. Morris.

It is rapidly written with Prout’s Brown Ink on hand- made paper and measures 15″ x 11″ –  38cm x 28cm, and is now available on eBay.

Have a look and if you have any suggestions as to any other pieces you might like to see listed, please let me know via the comments box.

Many thanks.

Keep watching this space.
