On the 3rd of July 2017 as well as firstly stopping by to the Llandaff Cathedral I walked on over to the near local shopping village to make my way over to a local art gallery that was unfortunately shut on that day. As I was walking through the village a particular window display caught my attention. Below is a picture of the gift shop I visited called ‘HALLS’.
In this gift shop these items interested me:
Key acknowledgment: The reveal of process as product.
I am pulled to the quirky objects that had an allowance for creative imperfect completions that celebrated and stood out infused with a life in the mess of their making.

Firstly on the 3rd of July I set out on a walk to the lovely Llandaff Cathedral. The Cathedral is very beautiful and well looked after I could see that it was a very important building to the locals who were working there. To be selective from the collection of photographs I had taken there I have chosen to pick this image shown below as a key source of inspiration that I gained from this visit.
Key acknowledgment from this find: the joys of symbolism to make people happy in each and combined whole image.
