Origin

Origin contemporary craft fair was held in London last week. When I started researching this years show I had planned to write about all the great events going on and how great it was to see lots of new makers showing their work. But when I started looking at the list of exhibitors and their amazing designs I got completely distracted. I’ve now turned into a greedy child that wants it ALL!

So here’s a small sample of all the amazing things I want…

 

Jeremy Cole, Orchid Cymbidium
Jeremy Cole, Orchid Cymbidium

Jeremy Cole‘s ceramic orchid lighting. I love the delicacy of his lighting. These beautiful lighting pieces are made using bone china. His work is influenced by plants and flowers like his Aloe Blossom collection which is inspired by the agave plant.

Eileen Gatt, Silver

I know I featured Eileen Gatt‘s work when I talked about Goldsmiths’ fair but when I saw this on the Origin Uk website I had to include it in my wish list. And it’s not just because I found another silversmith called Eileen!

Kate Wood, Barnacle Necklace Freshwater Pearls

If you want to see more beautiful jewellery like this have a look at Kate Wood‘s website she has lots more silver and pearl pieces.

Sarah Warsop

Sarah Warsop is a jewllery maker who’s work is heavily influenced by dance and choreography. It’s really evident in her pieces which have a beautiful fluidity and movement.

Mizuyo Yamashita, Ceramic

I found this ceramic piece on the Origin website but when I went looking for the makers website it seems to be under construction.

Well there you have just a small sample of all the beautiful work on display in Origin this year.
