    Cool in the pool

    A rather stifling two days indoors has had me daydreaming about plunging into crisp, refreshing water and lounging poolside all day long.

      The cat shaped swimming pool at the Fontainebleau Hotel, Miami, circa 1955.

    This piece 'Swimmer' is part of a collection of authentic re-editions of pieces by acclaimed ceramacist Waylande Gregory. The collection was inspired by a treasure trove of forgotten pieces that Gregory’s nephew, discovered in the basement of his uncle’s estate.

    Interesting shape of the pool, might find it a little difficult to do some lengths in there!

    The art pice looks great, I like the combination of the bold blue and the splash of brown/yello looks good!
