Bespoke kite commissioned by the curator Christine Armengaud for her latest exhibition: Playing with the Wind currently on display at Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv.
The exhibition is devoted to colourful, vibrant, and thrilling kites, old and new, that come from all over the world – China, Japan, India, the Philippines, Africa, America, Europe and Israel. For thousands of years kites have been a source of prayer, games, battles, contests, and art in various cultures.
As I am writing this, Unfortunately, due to the military situation, the exhibition wasn’t able have an official opening and private view on the 15.07.2014. It is postponed till a cease-fire occurs. But I was pleased to hear that the museum is open and members public will be able to see the exhibition.
Christine put it perfectly to me the other day: ‘It is a pity they fly missiles not kites…’
Materials: Tyvek, English Ash, linen thread, spray paint, Habotai silk tails.

I am really pleased to announce that the Slingshot prints are now available to buy.
Fresh Blood Arts have produced a set of images in four colours, these come in a choice of 2 sizes. They are available to buy individually and as a box set including all colours in both small and large sizes listed below.
Large is 43cm x 58cm and small is 29.5cm x 41cm, all slingshot prints are double mounted ready for framing. This is a limited collection there are only 30 Small Box Sets and 30 Large Box Sets.
Fresh Blood Arts work with a company called The Proofing House Limited one of the last hand printing companies left in Europe. They are a lithographic printing company who have been successfully using this ancient printing method for the past 30 years. Lithographic printing is timeless method of printing where every stage is meticulously produced by skilled craftsmen, inks are mixed by eye and the paper is fed into the press by hand. All this hard work means that the end result will not only be of better quality than the digital printing which is rife in today’s printing world but it will also be unique as no two lithographic prints are exactly the same.
Kabloom + Christopher Jarratt Limited Edition Slingshots are now available exclusively from KabloomShop HERE.
20 exlusive Kabloom Seedbom SlingsShots in 2 colour ways, green and magenta.
Hand-carved from fallen branches of birch, willow, oak, hornbeam or beech found in English forests each SlingShot is completely unique, even down to the coloured patteren. No 2 are ever the same so if your looking for that something a little bit different then we have just the thing. You can even GPS track the exact location each branch was found!
Each SlingShot is stamped with its unique number and signed authenticity tag, and is supplied in an exlusive handmade Kabloom ammo crate style wooden presentation box.
I was very flattered to be asked to include some pieces in the winter group show at the excellent B&B Gallery. If you get the chance to visit, you should!
