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!

VOGUE ITALIA – October 2013
I have just returned from running a Community Kite Project event held over 2 days at Vang folkebibliotek in the beautiful village of Vang i Valdres, Norway. More than 10 percent of the people living in Vang Kommune are asylum seekers, work migrants or refugees with resident status. Many have the local library as their daily rendezvous spot and we were keen to encourage residents from all walks of life to come make and fly kites together. A big thank you to Åsta Brenna for organising and promoting such a great kite project.

Spinning Signs – In The Woods festival 2013
First outing for a new piece I am working on inspired by thaumatropes and car mechanics. Great to see that they are able to still spin in minimal wind in the middle of the woods! An unexpected boon were the wonderful shadows cast buy the surrounding trees. Next install will be out in the open where they really let rip. Check back for more info, images and full tilt spinning action soon!
An ambitious new project combining the local landscape with people and communities to create a better, happier and nicer environment for locals and visitors alike. Darren made 1000′s of Seedbom’s with the local community, each packed to the brim with wildflower seeds and I brought a bespoke Giant Slingshot made to fire the Seedbom’s onto an empty field. What a blast. Looking forward to visiting next spring to see the wildflowers in bloom.
Special edition of 72 Slingshots (and two Giant Slingshots). Currently on display in The Shop at Bluebird, 350 Kings Road London.
Edition of 72 in three colours; Neon Pink, Neon Blue, Neon Organe, 24 of each colour. Giant Slingshots (unique) Tulip Blue & Melon Yellow.
