I've been walking past this shop on Dalston Lane since summer & wondering what these people were up to.
Recently, passing on a 38 bus, I saw them on the roof, erecting a chicken coop.

Then on the way to the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden recently, I peeked in and saw huge bubbling tanks of water, tiny plants growing in neat rows, towers of strange plant pot 'trees'...

Now they put a sign up, I've found their web site and I'm intrigued.

Kastehelmi by Oiva Toikka

We love these re issued 'Kastehelmi' bowls, so much, we just had to stock them for Christmas.
yep there's no getting away from it, its coming!!

They were designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964, reissued by Iittala in 2010 to clebrate 50 years of working with Toikka.

Cant wait to get a set of them home & fill with delicious red pudding . . . .
