curiousa and curiousa

we didn't get time to post anything on the blog yesterday - we are working on a couple of new things that are taking longer than we thought and we're making the most of this lovely weather by sorting out our veggie garden in the evenings. hope you're having as much sunshine as we are at the moment.

we thought we'd show you one of the designer makers work that we liked when we visited the Midcentury Modern show a few weeks ago. we were only passing through London briefly but wanted to check out the show so had a very quick look around. the show is a really nice collection of cool retro finds but also has new work from designer makers.

we were really taken with these glass lamps made by Esther Patterson of Curiousa & Curiousa.
in her bio, Esther says that her work is an expression and reaction to childhood memories - she has a passion for visual expression mixed with an intrigue of the natural world. as well as creating surface designs on fabric that are then used on vintage furniture, she creates lighting from cast bone china and hand blown glass. her poems and drawings are printed onto fabric and sometimes sandblasted onto the glass shades.

you can see more of Esther's beautiful work on her website {here}.
