Here's the link to Runaway Design Collective a gorgeous new kid's t-shirt company. Based in east London, they are a friends and family collective producing a range of baby and toddler tops. It's a breath of fresh air from kid's high street fashion and a really diverse mix of designers. My designs include a kid on a scooter, band practice and a toddler swim class.

Really excited about the launch of Discover, The Heal's Modern Craft Market! It's a two week event of exhibitions, demonstrations, artist talks, kids workshops and much more. I have already delivered over 70 pots for the market. Look out for my work at the Contemporary Applied Arts exhibition area....

I came across this article while looking for a copy of Kyra's book.... Wordpress from Sarah Morpeth describing Kyra Cane's new book. 

"What I particularly like is the glimpse inside artist's sketchbooks - The ceramicist Helen Beard applies her drawings to the surfaces of her pieces; I do like the simple sparse forms she records in her sketch books - she manages to sum up a personality in a quick drawing, capturing a quirky stance, a particular turn of the head."

Afternoon tea at the Andaz Hotel


Celebrating the Andaz hotel's support of the London Design Week and Crafted,* I have been asked to make a special tea service which can be booked by design and business people attending the event, for press meetings and anyone wanting to sample an unusual afternoon tea.

*Crafted is a joint initiative between Walpole and Arts and Business, set up to offer support and to promote established craft makers in the UK. I took part in the scheme 2009 -2010, mentored by Adam Gilchrist of Veedon Fleece.

November 2007

Edinburgh City Art Centre: Paper Stone Scissors, an exhibition of 6 selected craft makers who have been commissioned to make a new body of work in response to the city of Edinburgh. My response is perhaps the most literal: an installation of pots where I map out the familiar streets of the old town (close to ECA, my art college, my home, my life for those important student years). I have drawn the people, the tourists, the buskers, the rickety flats  and vast museums, the beautiful shops and the castle that rises above it all.  

Edinburgh City Council have purchased the piece and I hear they intend to display it at the newly refurbished Usher Hall.
