Hello and Happy New Year! I hope you are as pleased as me that a new year has begun. I tend to hibernate through December as a reaction to Christmas-mania then emerge in January, looking forward to spring. 2015 has already started well, with a pottery commission that I'm excited about and a general feeling that this will be a fine year. I thought I'd kick-off by introducing The Maker Drawers, an interesting series of curated drawers from one of my favourite companies, The New Craftsmen. Housed in an old plan chest in their shop building, each drawer has been filled by a different maker, telling the story of their work and providing a unique insight into the techniques, materials & processes that they use. Pictured above are drawers by Aimee Betts, Michael Ruh, Gareth Neal, Laura Carlin, Silvia K Ceramics and Katherine May. If you get a chance to visit the shop and see the drawers in person, do! It is probably one of my favourite places to be in London, as all the work is highly skilled and expertly chosen. Otherwise, please enjoy this online rummage and visit their website to see more.
