I can’t get enough of my favourite ceramicist artist in London, Sally McGill. Her sense of aesthetics is pure indulgence to me. I love her colour combinations of splashing a little orange onto porcelain plates mixed with fine black lines. Or turquoise circles on plates. Her pieces are all handmade and beautifully crafted. She recently moved to a new studio at Regent House,Thane Villas, London N7 7PH but catch her this week at the Three Day Designer-Maker Sale at Craft Central, 33-35 St Johns Square, London, EC1M 4DS running from 9th to the 11th August, opening hours from 12-6pm (Thursday till 8pm).
Obscure Objects of Desire
I love these expanding flower pots developed by Studio Ayaskan on show recently at the Cockpit Arts open studio in Holborn, London. The expanding origami planters will grow with your plant by simply adding soil. No need to uproot your plant, get messy or your hands dirty. Besides their practicality, they look stunning too! They are not on sale yet, but register your interest by joining Studio Ayaskan’s mailing list.
End of November was open studio weekend in London. I spent most of my weekend going around the open studios, checking out latest designs and news from the designer-makers. For the November open studios, I managed to visit the studios in the Chocolate Factory in Stoke Newington, Craft Central in Clerkenwell and Cockpit Arts in Bloomsbury. Here is my edit of some of my favourite jewellery pieces.
Fancy feeling instantly uplifted? Just invest in some orange glassware. I can’t get enough of it.
This vase is designed by one of my favourite design shops in Tel Aviv by Elemento at 15 Hazorfim Street, Old Jaffa and made in Poland. Pure visual energy.
