Glass Sculpture by Stephen Procter

Stephen Procter is a bit of a legend when it comes to working with glass, he initially began by researching English glass engraving, this inspired him to learn and explore the craft in more detail.

Wood Fired Pottery by Hannah Lawrence

Yesterday at the pottery studio I was determined to make a teapot, so I had the studio owner throw the main body for me on the wheel to show the general process and how one can be formed. Like anything new, my first set of attempts were extremely poor, and I couldn’t quite grasp what I was actually trying to do. As time passed, many hours in fact, I finally got the hang of it and I could make the basic shape of the body without the clay collapsing on me …

Interior, Details and Spaces by Ian Shaw Architects

After an unusual post yesterday, an object inspired by a real world use that had been made in to a smaller form, I thought I’d look for an architect that’s a little closer to home.

Part of the project includes a fantastic online shop, which you should definitely browse through if you …

One of a Kind Ceramics by Atelier Stella

As you all know I’m a bit of a functionalist at heart, but I’m always intrigued when designers give their work that added touch of personality and character. Take for example these amazing ceramics by Stella Baggott, who makes these pieces under the alias Atelier Stella in London, England. It’s great to see someone local to us producing items like this on a regular basis, even if Stella only makes them when she gets time away from her other creative …

Further Imagery from Tim Simmons

Speaking to a few of our readers it seems like a lot of you are pretty gutted that BBC’s Frozen Planet series has reached it’s end. There’s obviously something quite captivating about seeing new environments that we aren’t familiar with, so with this in mind I thought it would be fitting to return to photographer Tim Simmons as his portfolio is packed full of similar jaw dropping scenery. Lot’s of these shots we’ve got here today …

Further Imagery From Charlotte Bland

Charlotte Bland once again lifts the mood on this drizzly and disheartening day here in England with her photography which never fails to highlight the beauty in everyday life. I’m returning to her portfolio once again as I love the fact that her looks remind us all to see the brighter side of things, even on an ugly forecast of a day. Fellow enthusiastic photographer and close friend to Charlotte, Brian Ferry seems to have held quite …
