During the summer, Bristol was host to a flock of oversized Shaun the Sheep sculptures which had been designed by artists and famous people from the worlds of film, art, animation and fastion. In early October, they were all auctioned off with the proceeds going to support the Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity. The town of Tetbury has bought Nitwit. The sheep, was designed by Adrian Barclay, is wearing the sort of outfit that might have been knitted by a granny. It's wonderfully colourful and great for children to pose by!
Where would you go to have bespoke miniature fishbowls made? Aardman Animations, creators of the wonderful Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep characters used Cotswolds based LoCo Glass. Nearly a year ago LoCo Glass announced that they had just finished making cute miniature goldfish bowls and that the next time we'd see them would be in the Shaun the Sheep movie with a plasticine fish inside. That time has come! Head to cinemas now to be enthralled by another amazing movie by Aardman. As one reviewer wrote, " Smart, funny, big-hearted, endlessly inventive and quintessentially British, this timeless, stop-motion adventure is a shear delight from start to finish." Sounds like great half term viewing.
LoCo glass work from the New Brewery Arts Centre in Cirencester – you can visit their workshop to see them in action. For more information about them visit http://www.locoglass.co.uk/
