Pip and Pop

Amazing psychedelic landscape installation in sugar! 
Its on at Smithsrow in Bury St Edmunds and if you are in the area you must try and catch it before the end of the month. Youngest and I paid a visit on Saturday having seen it on another couple of blogs(thank you purplepoddedpeas  and  silverpebble)  and it was  even better than anticipated. Everyone that walked into the gallery couldn't help but wear a huge grin. Its detailed, intricate and you would see different things, I'm sure if you stood there for a month. Its made from 700 kilos of coloured sugar and took 14 days to complete. Adorned with glitter, sequins, aquatic greenery, tiny little figures and beautiful origami pieces, all in the most magical colours. 

Its a free exhibition and am sure would not disappoint a soul, old and young alike. We loved it...


  1. Elsy, thanks so much for dropping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment!Very pleased to meet you too!
    The photos are incredible, what an amazing thing to make!!!!Where do people get these wonderful ideas from, and thank heavens they do!!!
    Its half term next week, we might try a trip there, just about do-able as a day trip,and would be something different! A change from the shopping trips that my daughter usually wants to do!
    Would be very grateful if you could recommend any other mustdos in the vicinity!
