I love working in a consultative way with clients who are happy to do the shopping and organising themselves after our time together. Last week I was with a longstanding client - we’ve been working our way slowly round her family home over the last 2 1/2 years. Here’s a little peek at her son’s completed bedroom scheme, which I specified for her in March. Look carefully and you’ll see the wallpaper is a manipulated photograph of boats #boysbedroom#yorkshireinteriordesigner#tweenbedroomdesign#britishmakers#ilkley
Before the summer I was working on the idea of pairing my pieces with a very dark textured piece • This is the result • Very much work in progress, I like the contrast to my highly burnished pieces but I think I may have ‘over cooked it’. Literally! • To get it this black it has had several firings in the smoke which I think maybe too much? • I’m going to live with it for a while and see where the next piece takes me...watch this space! #workinprogress#ceramicartist#smokefiredceramics
