Collaboration! Summer Selection with Natalie Stoker

Happy International Collaboration Day! Here's a photo-shoot of some choice objects for the summer season. It's to celebrate my recent collaboration with talented textiles designer Natalie Stoker. Check out her gorgeous designs in her shop here.

SUMMER SELECTION!

One-of-a-kind necklaces made from natural volcanic pebbles and antique cut glass embellishments. Swimsuit not compulsory, I'd suggest thrown over a plain white shirt where it will give a bit of beachy texture to the stuffy city commute. Keep your eyes on the SHOP for when they arrive.

A polished pairing of a hand sculpted bangle and ring in metallic flecked white resin will show off even a subtle summer glow. Finish off with your fave shades and a lick of ice-cream. (I recommend Ginger's Comfort Emporium's "White Chocolate and Pink Peppercorn"...).

The print for these scrumptiously soft cushions has been created by Natalie using photographs taken in my studio of the processes during making my objects. You can read more about the inspiration behind this collab in the new shop here.

Happy Collaboration Day! Hope you all get to spend it working on something fun with friends and family, (even if it's as simple as peeling the spuds for a nice meal together).

"Let's collaborate... You bring the G...I'll bring the T!" Wahoooo :) 

Gray Magazine

Really excited to be featured in the latest issue of Gray Magazine

 "A reflection of the Pacific Northwest's vibrant design + architecture scene. GRAY is a print and digital magazine filled with resources, engaging features, and interviews covering architecture, landscape, interior design, industrial design, décor and fashion—all things that are imagined, made or available in the Pacific Northwest."

This issue is inspired by contrasts and duality, with the content literally halved into two sections so that in the middle you flip the mag round to read the rest!

I've always been into turning convention on it's head, and two of my Hewn rings feature in this middle two page spread where it flips! Check it out below, a black and a white Hewn ring available at Craft & Culture or directly from me made in your size. Just email me for details on how to have your bespoke ring made to your preference! 

Here's the online version for you to read for yourself! This issue has some interesting write ups on designers with split careers, which is becoming even more common as people take a sudden change in their path or bring polar opposites together so that they feed the different needs in their life. Check out the gorgeous cutting edge objects to window shop for some inspiration!
