It has been a real privilege to create the Manser Medal for The Sunday Times British Homes Awards.
The Medal was conceived in 2001 to inspire innovation in house design, to show how social and technological aspirations can be met by intelligent design.
Many congratulations to Eldridge London, who won the 2017 Medal for their hose in Coombe Park. The Jury panel commented that: “This is a house that can’t be ignored, has many stunning and surprising elements and whilst unlikely to be copied will give Architects and house builders much to think about.”
The form of these two vases is created by three ovals which are twisted, one above the other, to create a shape that bulges in the middle when seen from one side but cinches from the other – from another angle it looks completely straight sided.
The geometry of the pattern is created by the form, the colours – inspired by a rural sunset – are mirrored on each pot.
The flowers… are just perfect.
More painterly, less colourful…. but still with the geometry underpinning the pattern
I’m delighted that six of my pots have been selected by Madina Benvenuto and Marine Halna du Fretay for inclusion in an online sale of unique contemporary ceramic pieces from across Europe. Do take a look, there are some lovely pieces on sale!
Delighted that the piece about my pots is still featured on the front page of the Wall Street International magazine.
There is a nice mention of my work in the Bevere Gallery’s blog.
The gallery is currently showing a number of my pots until the end of September. I’m honoured to be part of their 10 year celebrations!

A slightly grainy shot but… here are my pots on show at the Bevere Gallery in Worcester.
Kate Enters has written a lovely piece about me and my pots in the Wall Street International Magazine. It is always intriguing when other people talk about your work….
Here are a couple of the 3D printed pots that she refers to in the piece, and a link to my talented sister Sophie Arup‘s website – also mentioned.
