Bathing deserves your attention.

“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them." - Sylvia Plath

At one point in time (precisely 202 BC - 220 AD) officials of China were permitted to take a days leave to bathe. The first instance of a bank holiday was for the purpose of bathing. In Japan, the day resembles - eating, sleeping, bathing; of equal measured value. A repeated motif in fine art - a person bathes - in countless paintings from Baroque to Impressionism. It is with these brief notes we decide it is not outlandish to declare: bathing deserves your attention. 

Carve out a moment and fill it with warm water. Adorn your time in this space with thoughtfully made objects, this is where inspiration comes to nest. "Find a moment of peace in this holy trinity; art, design and bathing is tried and tested. You know where to find us. Soak sooner, not later."
