currently loving

it's been such a long time since we did one of our currently loving features but we saw Derek's Winter Edit today and had to share.
we've been fans of Derek's beautiful ceramics since meeting him at Origin a few years ago and are lucky enough to own 4 pieces of his work.

square stanley coffee table by pachadesign

we thought we'd share a few images of one of our latest commissions - a square version of our stanley coffee table that we delivered to london last week.

we used beautiful raw oak boards to contrast with the stainless steel bases.  we love our original design but was thrilled to be able to adapt our design to create this square version for our client.

our materials: reclaimed cornish slate

like all of our materials, we spend a lot of time sourcing & choosing the right pieces.
our slate comes from old buildings and are sometimes so dirty that it is impossible to see the colours and markings underneath.
it's a lot of work cleaning them up, chipping away just to get to the slate.
once we have cleaned them up we can see the beautiful colours and markings in each piece - a mixture of deep & light blues, little patches of rusty orange, greys, browns & blacks, and sometimes a real defined contrast of lights & darks.
every single piece of slate is different which makes each item that we make unique.

Glenn hand cuts each piece and then polishes the slate to reveal more of the colours that have occured due to the slate being weathered for years and years and years.
we use reclaimed cornish slate in our accessories collection for our mirrors, ranging from small portrait ones to large sculptural panoramic ones.
we also make a range of clocks from this beautiful slate, polishing a circle for the face so it's smooth and leaving the rest slightly textured.

jono smart

one of our favourite potters, Jono Smart, opened his online summer shop yesterday and is already selling out fast, which doesn't surprise us at all as his work is stunning.

we worked with Jono last year, collaborating on a few different ideas for wooden plinths for his beautiful cups, sugar bowls, pourers and little vases - as you can see below, we used english oak for the dinner set of 6 cups and ash & burnt oak for the breakfast sets.

check out his online shop {here} - only open until 6th aug {so be quick!}
and his Instagram feed {here} is a must for beautiful images of his work, info & images of his making process & stunning photographs of Scotland where Jono is now based.
