Give Colour and Light This Christmas…




What an epic year it’s been in life and work here at the studio in Sussex. A colourful wedding; described by guests as ‘The Darling Buds of May….on acid’. Electric blue corn flowers, vibrant pink roses, deep maroon dahlias and a scarlet silk wedding dress. A new studio nestled in a beautiful valley in Burwash. A massive commission and lots of lovely new products…. Give something that will last this year – GIVE COLOUR !


I’m delighted to share news of a commissioned series of 18 hand woven artworks I’ve made for The Britannia Cruise ship launching next March for P&O. Called ‘Beyond the Sea – A homage to Blue’ these new wall pieces involved weaving more than 25m of fine cloth with a Lurex thread weft. Who says sparkle is only for Christmas. I also have a numberof small artworks for sale; please email for available pieces:

IKAT LAMPSHADES We completed a photo shoot last week for the new lampshades. The wonderful photographer Nicole Rowntree again did a fantastic job creating beautiful images to illustrate the new collaboration. Available from both Copper and Silk  and Ptolemy Mann’s  websites.

BED LINEN, RUGS, CUSHIONS AND THROWS FOR CHRISTMAS I’ve added a number of new KIMONO MANN cushions to the shop and also want to remind you all about the throws and bed linen which is still available…but stock it limited so order soon! We also have a fair number of rugs available for immediate delivery… please do get in touch to see what we have.

Keep warm and inspired this winter!
