Made in England

You've worked it out by now... we're from a very great Britain... full of so much wonderful design. I really wanted to take a moment to show you three fantastic English designers. byGraziela Farm Yard kids poster

byGraziela has taken the iconic designs of Graziela Preiser which were hugely popular in the 1970’s in Germany. Now made in the United Kingdom, these posters look great in any nursery but will also brighten up any living space. The posters are all hand-signed and usefully fit into standard frames. Amen to that.

Kathleen Hills, Made in England rolling pin

Next up is Royal College of Art graduate, Kathleen Hills. Her bone china rolling pin with raised lettering which prints 'Made in England' into the pastry which would make for some fantastic pie crusts! The Crafts Council is a huge fan and even the fabulous Cate Blanchett commissioned a lighting installation for her home. I just love it!

Enough? No? Okay, one more...

Liam Hopkins self assembly dog, Gerald

Gerald is a small self assembly mascot dog measuring just 27cm in length. He comes flat-packed and needs your help to be put together. Available in limited edition Dazzle (print by Richard Sweeney), Pixel and in plain white to make yourself, all you need is a ruler, glue, scissors or a craft knife. If you know a dog lover and looking for the perfect gift, this could be a cute little idea by Manchester-based designer Liam Hopkins.
