MADE LONDON 2016

This weekend I was exhibiting at Made London at One Marylebone, it was a wonderful show and my third year! I thought I’d share some images of my stand and a few of my (many) favourite things by other makers:

Chatsworth House

Last weekend I was up in Derbyshire for a wedding party; it was a wonderful weekend full of friends, dancing and beautiful countryside. On the Saturday we visited Chatsworth House which was beautiful and made me come home and watch Pride and Prejudice for the umpteenth time!

Contemporary British Craft takeover part 1

Design and craft

I love this time of year because there is always so much going on! In the last couple of weeks I have been to Decorex International, Design Junction, London Design Fair and Ceramics in the City, all on as part of the London Design Festival. I wasn’t consistent with photographing what I saw but here are some images from Future Heritage at Decorex:
