The collection is made from recycled wine and beer bottles, but isn’t like some of the boring, old, recycled glassware seen before. Instead, the beauty of these pieces comes from their organic shapes and frosted original colors juxtaposed with hard, sharp angles, giving them a luxurious feeling. Two Chardonnay bottles becomes a carafe and beer bottles are transformed into drinking glasses. Tord Boontje and Emma Woffenden

The chair is a combination of the designer’s visual views and his life-long study on construction. The designer is known for his other light-weight foldable chairs – so the 2F chair is a continuation of his design thinking. It also has an ecological aspect which has been important to the designer.Hannu Kahonen

A range of hand-thrown bowls, vases and tableware is produced in two stoneware clays, with combinations of celadon and iron-saturated glazes. Beauty through use’ and the demand for fine craftsmanship are the motivations for potting. Suleyman Saba

This tableware can adapt and ‘multifunction’ to suit contemporary living. The cup has been integrated with the saucer and therefore can stack on top of another. The small cream jug can function as a lid to the sugar pot to become a tidy set.Louisa Taylor

“My making techniques and influences are varied. The art and design of the Far East is the strongest inspiration at present.
Contrasting elements are an important part of my work. This may materialise in loose decoration or soft glazes over tight forms, or in the use of non-ceramic materials.”Jonathan Wade

“I find the natural textures and tactile qualities of the naked clay most seductive therefore I keep my glazing simple in colour and often dry. The magic in making happens for me when a pot is freshly thrown. It fascinates me to alter and transform a thrown form, capturing the energy and movement within. Natural formations interest me but predominantly it is my own personal experimentation with the plastic quailities of the clay and the wheel process which lead me to question, contemplate, resolve and create.”Karen Morgan

The attention is focused on functional wares: the throwing wheel is the major tool  used to produce them. The porcelain is soft, warm, responsive to the  touch, and playful to the  imagination. Following my intuition and his own personal sense of beauty,Sun Kim tried to find balance and stability in his pots.
