Here at 70s House Manchester, we LOVEworking with fellow small businesses and artists, if you follow our Instagram you will have seen that we have been working with the adorable Mayra from Earthen Forge on a collaboration using our iconic Yootha Tangerine design.
Making a glass neon sign is an art form, a craft, alchemy if you will, heating of base elements and filling them with inert gas to create something magical. I have been fortunate to have been able to work with Neon Creations, owned by Tony and Catherine Spink, who, since 2005 have created bespoke neon signs for illustrious customers such as Calvin Klein, Vans, BBC, Paul Smith, EMI Music and more. Tony trained as Neon Glass blower in the 80s and is possibly the most passionate man I know about his craft and keen to share his knowledge, as a result Neon Creations have decided to open their studio to people to come in and have a go themselves.
There’s a Christmas decoration that is so rare that it has achieved unicorn status, the Panaura. It is mentioned in hushed tones of awe amongst mid-century and retro Christmas enthusiasts, the decorations that everyone wants to find in the wild, but rarely do.
Here at 70s House Manchester we truly love the festive season and enjoy the feeling of comfort and joy it brings to the darkest time of the year. Now is the season to embrace home comforts and bring a great big dollop of festivity into your home with décor, seasonal fragrances and Christmas decorations.
