Crafts 262, the Autumn issue has arrived.
This month, ahead of his exhibition at SCP during London’s Design Festival, we visit the workshop and studio of Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek. We also talk to silver and metal artist Simone ten Hompel about the importance of collaboration and conversation as she prepares for a major solo show at Ruthin Craft Centre. And we discover how ceramist Jennifer Lee’s practice has shifted since a residency in Japan.
Plus, we travel up to Scotland to hear how North Lands plans to celebrate its 20th anniversary as a centre for glassmaking, and over to Ireland to learn about the remarkable revival of Mourne Textiles. And if that’s not enough, we’ve picked out our favourites from this year’s crop of talented graduates, rounded up seven extraordinary moments from the history of automata and launched a new column by Jane Norris ushering you through an alphabet of craft.
