I love the look and idea behind this upcoming show from UK artists Claire Platt and Camilla Stacey. It's called Calm Air All Ice where the two who share a reverence for vintage fabrics and traditional craft techniques join forces to exhibit work heavy in nostalgia and derived from a combination of inspirations, ranging from WWII aircraft to children's paper folding games.

Using hand dyed and knitted yarns Claire creates soft toy replicas of Second World War planes, and hand stitched medals while Camilla uses vintage hankies which she uses to embroider, screen print and fold into new pieces of art. Claire and Camilla will be documenting the evolution of their work on-line:
