Made in Clerkenwell, Craft Central – May 2013

A wide range of artists and crafts people gathered at two of Craft Central‘s design studios on Clerkenwell Green and St John’s Square for a four day show case of talent.

There were too many talented people to feature in this article but the one’s that really attracted our attention were Nahoko Kojima, Suet Yi, Silphi, Love Bessie and Quinton Designs.  Thanks to you all for creating a wonderful and magnetic display for fans of Clerkenwell Crafts.

Nahoko Kojima‘s handmade Japanese paper cut sculpture ‘Cloud Lepoard’ really wowed the crowds. This complex piece, hovering in mid-air, dominated the ground floor showroom to stunning effect.

The wire sculptures from Quinton Designs amazed us also. We loved their horse and dog sculptures for their realism and cute factor.

We loved Silphi’s stylish Jewellery designs and their chic displays. The choice of shapes, colours and patterns were very pleasing to the eye.

The illustrated ceramics by Suet Yi were enchantingly simple and magical and would make wonderful images for children storybooks.

We adored the camp and girly imagery from Love Bessie designs. Their selection of creative designs was one of the most colourful we came across this evening.

Ham made designs brought to mind the imagery of Arthur Rackham. Their delightful silhouette collection of pictures, cards and ceramic designs are surely to become highly collectable in years to come.
