• Week Thrift Store Sighting

    Thrift store sighting

    I must admit that for some time, I’ve been anticipating the experience of seeing my work in a thrift store/jumble sale, and wondering how to prepare myself for this. But this weekend it actually happened: I got an email from Steve Basile, who had spotted one of my Mountain Garden screenprints that I made in an edition of 20 …

    Colour: Inspiration for Brise Soleil

    Post-launch, it’s always great to look back at what inspired a collection, and of course you know that the patterns designed for the BRISE SOLEIL collection were inspired by breezebrick midcentury screens, but I thought you might like to see my inspiration behind this colour palette, which you’ll see used throughout our 2016 Lookbook. The strange, but insanely …

    Making Friday: Old habits and new designs

    Whenever I end up in my Think Tank on Making Friday without a proper idea of what I’d like to get done, I seem to do the same thing: I fill up a page with regular brush marks that look like multiple openings, or windows in a big building. It’s relaxing, and makes me feel like I’m …

    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). …

  • Oddjects Invitation

    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.
