Yummy break in London


Yesterday I decided to take a trip to London, I wanted to escape from Coventry but I didn’t want to go Birmingham, it was lovely.
The goal I set my self was to go check out the barbican exhibition hall for some inspiration for my art work but I was more inspired by the journey. I ended up taking 10 tubes because my useful partner thought he was sat nav but his battery was clearly low and we got lost. It was delightful having company, I usually go to galleries on my own because I haven’t met anyone as enthusiastic as me or shared similar interest. I was so lost in London I found places that were more beautiful and peaceful amongst the rush hour. I never took notice of the stalls till yesterday or appreciated all the lights in London. It was great walking amongst a crown and having no one recognise me.
However, I did enjoy a lovely hot chocolate and croissant, oh the taste, it was beautiful. Crispy yet a soft pastry and chocolate so rich that I can still taste it, with the addition of the whipped cream with chocolate, fabulous.

Chocolate Fanatic, Food Pyramid


Chocolate Fanatic, Food Pyramid

When I had the opportunity to do sculpture, unlike my peers i didn’t resort to using materials such as cardboard or stereotypical materials such as clay, I used chocolate. In class our focus was on dwelling, i thought outside the box and thought “food is my dwelling” its my comfort, so i made a pyramid out of malteser chocolate. I chose to use chocolate after looking at the artist, Anya Gallaccio, the idea of being enclosed in a surrounding smelling so sweet, it is as though your in a trance through the sense of smell.
