The Foundry Studios

After much time spent organising the Phoenix Project by phone and computer, I am finally getting around to some shooting time. I headed off to the Foundry Studios yesterday. Originally built as a Victorian foundry, this huge shell of a building is divided up along each side by artist studios, storage spaces and a couple of small businesses. The high ceiling and sky lights create a light airy atmosphere above, while the space below is just full of things. Brighton prop and sign maker Paul Harrison has taken over the far end of the building so wherever you look you might find you a cupid, or gears made out of foam, or Isambard Kingdon Brunel, or a silver panther. Nearby is Mike Pattison’s office, a green campervan perched five feet off the floor. He makes robots and such. Further along is Kaigami, where Guillaume Lyons creates beautiful laser cut lamp shades that are sold in places like John Lewis. It is a world unto itself.
