The Colours of Correll

gemma correll, illustration, ceramics, accessoriesIf you’re familiar with Gemma Correll (which we’re sure most of you are :) ) then you’ll know she uses a simple but effective colour palette of Red, Black and White for all of her humorous illustrative work featuring funny dogs (inspired by her own little pugs) and lots of unimpressed cats.


bestfriendcard


We’ve been eagerly awaiting the new collection of pieces from Gemma Correll x Ohh Deer arriving in the gallery. Having worked with Gemma for a number of years, her work never fails to disappoint both staff and customers.


A chuckle heard in our extensively stocked card section is usually someone clutching one of her cards. Gemma seems to capture the everyday perfectly, and features the funniest situations that we can all relate to.


How TO Get Card


We just had to share these pieces along with lots of other Red Goodies that we have in the gallery at the moment. We do seem to be drawn to the colour Red.


camper-iron-on-patch


Show your Correll love to the world with her fun collection of patches. Did the thought of trying to achieve your camping badge in the Girl Guides make you shudder? If only we could have worked towards these patches when we were young(er).


hell-is-other-people-ceramic


Mornings can be tough, say it loud and proud with this Mug and I’m sure everyone will stay clear until they see that empty mug. We have many more great products from Gemma. check out her page in the shop.


passive aggressive, charlotte farmer, colouring book


Do you love the resurgence of colouring books but hate the thought of the calming books filling the shelves in your local book shop? Charlotte Farmer has the answer for you in her new Passive Aggressive colouring Book.


Move Mountains Inside


Love Red as much as we do? We’ve just been restocked with the gorgeous leather wallets by Keecie. Red Move Mountains is one of our favourites. All her accessories feature hidden screen printed linings.


Rand and ruta screenprinted bag


We shared some of the new products by Atomic Soda last week. We have lots more products arriving soon but this is one of our favourites, we love the geometric screen printed design on this bag and it features sturdy leather handles.

They may not be Red, but how could we miss these little guys out of this weeks new arrivals? The cutest little ceramic creatures just begging for new homes, these have just arrived from Barruntando and will be online soon.
