Last month I had the pleasure of heading to Barrow Gurney in Somerset to meet furniture designer Tom Rowan and interview him for Somerset Life magazine. Tom’s work will blow you away: inspired by passions, memories and dreams and fuelled by a passion for speed and movement, his furniture bridges that important gap between art and function. Take a look a my feature below, see Tom’s website here and Somerset Life’s website here.
Inspired by the rural surroundings of Somerset and drawn to exploring the intimate relationship between porcelain and light, Claire Springfield’s ceramics are really rather special. I was lucky enough to visit her studio in Cossington to write a feature for Somerset Life this month. Read my article below (click for a bigger view) and see more of Claire’s work here.
