Made London seems to have become the new Origin, the annual Crafts Council event in London for makers. The selection is pleasingly diverse with something for all tastes and business seemed brisk during my visit.
I featured Helaina Sharpley in a previous post and was pleased to see this new large piece, the main one on her stand. She’s working on ever more complex pieces, gaining an increasing level of fluency in her wire drawing. Helen Thompson of Holy Smoke was a first-time exhibitor with these beautifully observed creatures made of linen and wire. The very French cake would be wonderful in a shop display. Love the Merchant & Mills pin detailAnimal lovers will really go for these portraits. Drawing always gets to me – I’m addicted to it.
