Bill and Ben the Flower Pot Men was a beloved British puppet show made in the ’50s and shown on Australian TV throughout the ’60s. The show centred around two tiny men made of flower pots and their friend Little Weed, who were visited on occasion by Dan the Potato Man. The Flower Pot Men spoke in Oddle Poddle (“Flobabdob!”), a language invented by Peter Hawkins, who also voiced the Daleks on Dr Who. Like the toddler-style language of the Teletubbies, Oddle Poddle was later criticised by do-gooders for hindering children from learning proper English. The original Bill and Ben puppets now reside in the London Museum.

From HOW I FELT
A series of 200 felt prints I created during 2019 & 2020.
Each size is a limited edition of 50 pieces.
Every work is hand-printed in Sydney on recycled acoustic felt.
I sign, title, number, date, and frame every print myself.
As well as being warm and fuzzy, felt improves a room’s acoustics.

FRAMING

All How I Felt prints come in the frame colour shown.*
Only 70×50 and 50x50cm prints are available unframed or framed.
10×15, 21×30 and 23x23cm frames include a stand and hanging hook.
L-pins or a hanging brace are the easiest way to hang unframed prints on plaster or wooden walls. A frame is better if your wall is brick or concrete.
None of my frames include glass because felt looks better naked. 
I can provide clear acrylic (not glass) and a sealed backing for $30 if the work will be hung in a moist environment like a beach house. Click here to add acrylic to your framed order.
*Unless otherwise specified.

SHIPPING

Sydney art lovers can avoid shipping costs by collecting work and paying cash at my studio in Darlinghurst. Otherwise shipping is calculated at check-out. Each print is hand-made so please allow 2-4 weeks for domestic delivery and 3-5 weeks for international. Let me know if you need a piece urgently as I may have one already printed.

CUSTOM WORK / COMMISSIONS

I’m happy to quote on custom felt prints featuring your choice of subject matter in any size. I also work with interior designers to create feature walls that visually and acoustically enhance living or work spaces.
