The Bridge Pottery Collective Sample Sale

The Bridge Pottery collective has set up a ‘seconds’ display in the drawing room on the third floor. All items for sale by donation (box on shelf), with proceeds going towards maintenance and equipment for the studio. We hope to open this up to the public in future but for now any tenants wanting to snap up a bargain piece of handmade pottery please come and take a look. We’ll be refreshing the shelves regularly in our efforts to reduce our environmental impact and waste.

20/20 HINDSIGHT: a showcase of womxn’s writing art and music

Blunt Knife Co. is a new social enterprise based in Edinburgh that supports and promotes creative womxn. This month we launch our first project 20/20 HINDSIGHT, a showcase of writing, art and music by womxn creators.

For the most part, the last 12 months have been a steaming pile of shite, but from within the dung-heap brilliant artists have persevered and pushed out art that has enthralled us, inspired us, excited us and had us fist-pumping F*CK YEAHs to the universe.

From April 10 we’ll be bringing you a selection of 20 works by womxn that you may have missed amongst the chaos. It’s just a drop in a big pool of awesome, but think of it as a taste-test of Blunt Knife Co. and what we’re about.

To stay tuned follow on socials @bluntknifeco or head to bluntknife.co

Featured Artist: Constantine

Constantine is a self taught artist and author, originally from Athens, Greece. His first memory is that of drawing, which he carried on doing in his teen years, as well as exploring various others artistic and creative disciplines and routes such as music, which he still does to this day too.

Constantine first moved to Scotland as a young man, in order to study Geology. Throughout his University career though, he realized that Geology was really not for him and that life is simply too short to be wasted on things that have no appeal to us. He then made the decision to just follow his true calling, ignoring other peoples’ opinions and go after what HE wants in life.

Constantine has collaborated with many different artists’ from different artistic disciplines such as, visual artists, musicians and videographers/directors. He has provided his services for major Brands in the Alcohol and Hospitality industry, as well as developing and applying concepts in regards to interior design and “costume/uniform” design. Constantine has also experience in curating numerous exhibitions as well as co-curating 3 international art groups shows, and booking and organizing music concerts. His commissions include, tattoo designing, music vinyl covers and labels as well as numerous private commissions. He has exhibited numerous solo projects, worldwide, as well as participated in several group shows. Constantine is also the Author and Publisher of the Book Art “Jazz Mafia Project”.
