Crafts 268 – The Brown Betty
Crafts 268: say hello to a bumper issue of Crafts with the Brown Betty.
Inside this issue, ceramic designer Ian McIntyre explains to our editor Grant Gibson why he decided to re-engineer the classic Brown Betty teapot, and Emma Crichton-Miller meets furniture maker David Gates and enamel artist Helen Carnac to find out about their new collaboration.
Irish maker Edmond Byrne tells us why he swapped graphic design for glass as his solo show opens at Flow gallery, while Jerwood Makers Open and Woman’s Hour Craft Prize finalist Laura Youngson Coll talks us through her extraordinary series of work in vellum produced after the death of her partner.
We also bring you a special supplement introducing the twelve shortlisted makers for the Woman’s Hour Craft Prize as an exhibition of their work opens at the V&A.
