PENGUINS
AND PIE

It's the last day of Tommi's and Kunto's
holiday and as parting gift they bought a
beautiful penguin mug from the
London Transport Museum Shop.

It's designed by Charles Paine.
After
graduating from the
Royal College of
Art in London he moved to the
Applied Art Department of
Edinburgh College of Art.

He then went on to design stained glass for
Guthrie and Wells in Glasgow. During the
1920s he designed textiles and posters for
a wide range of clients including the
Underground Group (1920-1929). In
the 1930's he lived and worked in
Welwyn Garden City, before moving
to Jersey. He died in 1967.


Apart from cooking his fantastic dinners for
us for two weeks, Tommi also baked his
famous
Korvapuusti cinnamon rolls
and we made a blueberry pie for

KB to welcome her home
from Corfu.
