MadeLondon 2013

thanks to everyone that came to see us at MadeLondon last weekend.
there was a great selection of makers at the show again this year & we met some really lovely people.

if you bought work from us at the show, thank you!  by the saturday we had completely sold out of our slate sushi serving plates so will be making more over the next week or two - we'll let you know when they are ready.

there was lots of lovely work at the show but one of our favourites was Kaori Tatebayashi's ceramics - beautiful organic shapes in simple earthy colours {black, white & sand}.  we treated ourselves to another piece of her lovely work.

currently loving: neon wetsuits

we discovered these very cool wetsuits a while back and I {sammy} have been lusting after them ever since.

neon are a small local company with origins similar to ours and we love founder Elsie's blog post explaining how she wanted to do things her own way.
we love the simplicity of the designs and the fact that you can create your own colour combinations, and that all the wetsuits are handmade to order in their studio in Cornwall.

aren't they beautiful ..... I've worked out my favourites.
I seem to be drawn to the greys, pinks & blues.
