    Best Things: Paul Wackers

    Earlier this year, when I was spending my Monday evenings at Warren Editions, I cut and printed this small lino print with the vague recollection of some planty inspiration I’d seen on Pinterest. It’s only today, when I spotted an article on Sight Unseen about Brooklyn artist Paul Wackers, that I realised where the idea for my print had come …

    Making Friday: collection

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll have no doubt have heard me banging on about what I made on Making Friday. In case you don’t know about it though, that’s the studio day I try to put aside for non-essential (but very essential) unstructured creative work. (Read more about the Making Friday idea). …

    In the shop: Oddjects exhibition

    For the last two years, I’ve been busy making a lot of rather idiosyncratic, non-functional ceramics – which I like to call “Oddjects” – and then also drawing and printing their shapes on paper and fabric. I’ve had a blast behind the scenes, and now the time has come to show the fruits of all this Making Friday activity …

    All the Oddjects

    For two years, I’ve been making things from clay at morning classes with Louise Gelderblom, but haven’t really catalogued them anywhere, so today’s the day to show all the Oddjects (or the ones I remembered to photograph, at least) all at once.

    Making Friday: From Sketchbook to Oddject

    Notebooks are very useful things to have with you. They’re good for recording fleeting ideas, and good to look back on to see where you’ve been. For two years, I’ve kept this little “Ceramics Ideas” notebook alongside my other general notebook, jotting down ideas for shapes I’d like to make in the Monday morning ceramics classes I’ve …

    Making Friday: Printing at Warren Editions

    Attentive readers of this blog may recall that during 2015, I spent four Saturdays at Warren Editions print studio, learning all about CMYK lino printing. I loved the workshop, so was super excited when Zhané Warren started opening the studio on Monday nights to alumni of the courses she’s run. I signed up for three months, …

    Making Friday: Lino Shavings

    A little Christmas tree made of lino shavings is a neat way to round off a year where block printing has loomed large, what with our block print inspired Diggi Dot collection, two collections of block printed scarves, and another trip to Jaipur to teach (and learn) about this amazing way of creating pattern. When …
