Cockpit Art's Open Studio

I went to Cockpit Art's Open Studio in Deptford, London with Thornback and Peel as they were exhibiting and I found some really nice textiles and ceramics. I liked Lizzie Allen's quirky hand screen printed wallpaper and recognized it from Liberty's.

Louisa Taylor Ceramics

Louisa Taylor's ceramics were really lovely and combined the glazed and unglazed textures together. I brought a little green jug that caught my eye.

Katharine Morling

These were amazing clay sculptures most of which were life sized! They are made out of clay then painted white and black lines added to add life. They are so quirky and very detailed.

This was a nice design shop full of goodies! TwentyTwentyOne - Upper Street, lsington.


Atelier was another really eclectic shop in Islington, on Upper Street. I especially loved the raven 3D birds and this cushion with the printed spotty skirt.


While in London I found 'Smug' in Islington, on Camden Passage. It was a lovely little shop with a very retro feel, it stocked a large range of homeware and apparel. Thornback and Peel also sell here as you can see there aprons hanging up in the last photo. Also visit the website its equally as lovely!

Margaret Howell

Fun shop window on Wigmore Street, London.
