Happy New Year to you all. Sorry we have not written a journal in a while, we got back in the studio after Christmas and we have just been so busy getting ready for Top Drawer and still sending lots of parcels. We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year!
We are so excited about 2018 and it all begins this weekend at Craft. Craft is part of the wonderful trade show, Top Drawer. Top Drawer is a fantastic design let event that showcases lots of companies who are there to find outlets for their work. We are so looking forward to being back there again this year and to hopefully find some more lovely shops to stock our work. We will also be launching some new designs at the show which are now available on the website.
Craft is a section of Top Drawer, that promotes British design and manufacturing. Craft showcases one of handmade pieces that are individual and contemporary. We will be in Craft on stand CR320 so please come and see us. We are hand picked a few of our favourites who will be with us at Craft this weekend.
Sevak Zargarian is a ceramic designer maker based in London, UK. Working from his garden studio at home, he has since kept a focus on process, investigating different surface finishes and making techniques, with an aim to create beautiful objects for the home. We love Sevak's work and his use of colour within his pottery. You can see Sevak's work on stand CR721. https://www.sevakzargarian.com
Giannina Capitani LTD was established in 2013. Based in London and from Italian - Scottish ancestry Giannina Capitani is known for juxtaposing bold, colourful, graphic pattern with luxurious tactile knitwear. Using her heritage as a starting point she draws inspiration from Italian design and combines it with Scottish textile tradition. We love Giannina's use of bold colours and contemporary patterns. You can find her work on stand CR115 http://gianninacapitani.com
Heather McDermott Jewellery specialises in contemporary jewellery made using stainless steel and precious metal. Each piece is made in Scotland and the materials are all sourced from Britain. She takes her inspiration from her island home, the Isle of Skye. Fisherman's nets, stacked creels and weathered buoys scatter the ever-changing shoreline. We love Heather's work, especially these earrings pictured above. Her use of different materials makes her work so interesting and great pieces to wear all the time. You can find Heather on stand CR222. https://www.heathermcdermott.co.uk
