Country Living

I was delighted to be asked by Country Living magazine to create a mug to celebrate their 30th anniversary.

This limited edition mug has been handmade and hand decorated by Burleigh at Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent.

The mug features on the cover of the magazine's April 2015 issue and inside you'll find a feature on our home and studio in the Scottish Highlands, photographed by Cristian Barnett who I've had the pleasure of working with before on two short films, including this one looking at the making of my Nature Table wallpaper.

You can find out more about the Country Living mug from their General Store.

Makkum Tichelaar Crockery

Our friends at Dick's Edinburgh opened their doors shortly after we'd relocated to Scotland and we've been regulars ever since.

Uli Schade and Andrew Dick stock a carefully edited selection of menswear, accessories and homewares, supporting small, independent manufacturers, old and new.

We've been slowly but surely adding to our collection of these beautiful, functional ceramic vessels, designed by Atelier NL and manufactured by Royal Tichelaar Makkum.

Atelier NL's Lonny van Ryswyck and Nadine Sterk started by digging up, shaping and baking clay from different locations through the Netherlands, creating a series of plates and bowls in different colors and structures, stamped to identify the area where the clay was sourced.

Dick's Edinburgh have a great selection of these pieces - cups, bowls and platters available from their shop at 3 North West Circus Place, Edinburgh EH3 6ST or via their online store.

Chelsea Flower Parade

Our friend and collaborator Christopher Brown has been busy over at Wild At Heart's Pimlico store, hand painting a number of iconic Chelsea characters in their windows.

These images are also available as a series of hand coloured prints and a little folded leaflet.

I'm not sure how long the display will be on show - perhaps give Wild At Heart a quick call before travelling.

Contact details for their Pimlico store can be found online.

And you can find a selection of Chris' limited edition linocut prints over at St Jude's.

St Jude’s In The City

Many thanks to everyone who has visited our latest St Jude's In The City event in London so far.

The exhibition closes at 5pm on Saturday 24th May 2014.

We're exhibiting a range of Angie Lewin's limited edition prints - linocuts, wood engravings, screen prints and lithographs - whilst Alex Malcolmson presents a series of new box constructions, mixed media collages and three dimensional works.

The exhibition takes place in an intimate gallery space hidden behind The Town House on Fournier Street in the heart of Spitalfields. The building dates from 1720 where silk weavers originally worked and plied their trade.

St Jude's In The City at The Town House, 5 Fournier Street, London E1 6QE.

Until 5pm on Saturday 24th May 2014 View daily opening times

Stellar market bags for Maggie’s

We're pleased to announce the launch of these fund raising market bags for Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres.

Designed by Angie Lewin and available in limited numbers of two colourways, the bags will initially be available from the Maggie's stand at the House & Garden Spirit of Christmas Fair in London that runs from Tuesday 30th October until Sunday 4th November 2012.

The bags will be available at the event for £30 each and everyone purchasing a bag there will be entered into a prize draw to win a £200 St. Jude's Fabrics voucher.

You'll also be able to purchase tickets for a draw where prizes include a copy of Angie's Knockando Thrift & Feathers screenprint.

After the event we'll have a limited quantity of the bags available online - again with all profits being donated to Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres.

It's great to have the opportunity to work with Maggie's again, and we'll be donating the profits from the second edition of Random Spectacular (published Spring 2013) to the charity next year.

Mark Hearld’s Harvest Hare

elledeco

Having won the Best British Pattern Design with Emily Sutton's Curiosity Shop in last year's awards, we're delighted that Mark Hearld's Harvest Hare wallpaper has been nominated for this year's Elle Decoration British Design Awards.

Based on an original linocut print by Mark, Harvest Hare is a single colour wallpaper, printed in the UK using water-based inks and paper from sustained forests. Available in 3 colourways: blue slate, corn and chalk white.

The awards take on a slightly different format this year with no specific categories - the six nominees with the most votes will be announced as winners at the end of October. 

These awards do make a difference to us - if you have a minute or two spare, please do vote for us online.

It's been a busy year for Mark with the publication of his collaboration with Nicola Davies, 'A First Book of Nature', a major exhibition opening at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in November and the first book dedicated to Mark's work being published by Merrell later this year. More on these events soon.

In the meantime, we'd really appreciate your support and your vote!
