    Making Friday: Keeping it Weird

    I don’t know what’s up with me and ceramics these days. I’ve been making some things I really have mixed feelings about once they’re out of the kiln, but I have a total blast while making them. This one happened on Monday night, when I was shaping the largest pot I’ve ever built, and ended …

    Making Friday with GIH Studio

    This post is a bit of a mashup of our Friends & Neighbours and Making Friday features, because it’s a story about a South African designer who credits his start as a furniture designer to my Making Fridays idea. I met Gareth Henderson of GIH Studio on a glaringly hot rooftop in Cape Town earlier this year, as …

    In Sunday Times Home Weekly

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a bit, you’ll know about Making Fridays – my weekly practice of committing time away from the To Do list, just making things because it’s what I want to do.

    Making Friday with Jenna

    I don’t know Jenna McArthur in the least, but I had lots of fun with her picture in my studio last Making Friday, after cutting away her dress to see what she’d look like dressed in Skinny laMinx prints. And the verdict is: She looks great in everything! Which is your fave?
