01. Designed by Barber & Osgerby.

Words

This year the British homewares company Royal Doulton is celebrating its 200th anniversary by producing a series of collaborations with artists and designers. One such offering is the Olio range, by Edward Barber and Jay Ogersby. Crafted from durable stoneware, wood and stainless steel, it evokes a more casual feeling than normally found in Royal Doulton’s traditional bone china designs. The collection has been designed to blend seamlessly with the existing items in one’s home, and this teapot, which is currently available from Everyday Needs, would appear to do just that.

The multi-talented, Auckland-based sculptor Gidon Bing, known for working in the mediums of wood, metal and ceramic, has created a number of beautiful vessels which enunciate a calm minimalism through their sturdy, simple forms and attractive French khaki colouring. Everyday Needs currently has a selection of different sized bowls, as well as a tall, footed vase – all of which would look great in any home, holding court in the middle of a table for decoration or used purposefully during a meal.

Leslie Williamson: Handcrafted Modern & Modern Originals

—01. Modern Originals.
—02. Handcrafted Modern.

Words

Having trained as a portraitist at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, the primary focus of Leslie Williamson's more recent work has been the world of interiors. Eschewing the glossy format often associated with this subject, she captures people's homes and the work of iconic designers and architects in a far more artistic way. Her first book published by Rizzoli, Handcrafted Modern, has done exceptionally well, and her second from the same publisher, Modern Originals, was released in April of this year.
