Two of my products have been selected to be included in the VOTE page of the new home brand MADE.COM.

Made offer handpicked pieces from designers all around the world. The designs are then added to the Vote page of their website and customers get to choose what will go into production – Power to the people!

The products are made to order then shipped back to the UK, which in total takes about 10 weeks. It might seem like a long time but that’s how they keep the prices so super cheap without skimping on quality. Lets be honest we’ve all been into a furniture shop and tried to order something only to be told it’s out of stock and you have to wait until 2020 for it to arrive! This way when you buy it it’s yours, clever!

I’m not just biased either, honest. I’ve got my eye on their Tripod Pedestal by Sean Dix.

Voting is easy, you click HERE and the products are below:

Thanks so much I’d really appreciate your support, all I want is for more people to be able to buy and enjoy my designs…VOTE!

Better Late then Never!

Shamefully late post of some Christmas markets and Pop-up shops I popped into before the frantic wrapping began. Even though Christmas has long gone and the evenings are gradually getting lighter I felt these were still worth a belated mention.


The Temporium is a new pop-up concept store that brings together some of the UK’s most exciting design-led brands. It was located in the Brompton Design District, and had a huge range of high end gifts including the Dezeen Watch Store.






Then right next door we came across Lovely Pop Up Store, it looked liked an old Jewellers and still had all the old shop fittings; great.  235 Brompton Road, Kensington.


Also managed to walk around the Cockpit Arts Open Studios, in Holborn. It was chilly but the mince pies and Mulled wine kept all the visitors coming!

I bought some great acrylic ring/brooches from the Lost Values studio, where adults and children were busy making some of their felt monster's with LED eyes. I also love their reflective range, which was exhibited at LDF 2009.


Then finally The Chocolate Factory, in Stoke Newington, which was part of the Hidden Art Open Studios. It is a really great space, with a real mix of of makers from ceramicists to illustrators.

And then home, only to realise you forgot one vital present.
