I am both delighted and sad to have sold this vase. Made in 2014, it has been with me for quite some time so I have grown to enjoy its company. I hope it enjoys its new home, in a restored 1960’s James Bond style mansion; I can’t wait to see the pictures!
Following the Best of British show in Shanghai, I spent an enjoyable hour chatting to Agnes about good and bad design, the power of brands and, of course, ceramics. The result is an article on her blog site Agnes’ Select – if you read Chinese, do take a look.
I had such fun showing my Geometric Collection at the Best of British exhibition in Shanghai at the end of October. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and find out more about the Chinese market.
I made the decision to leave the remains of the collection in Shanghai, to take advantage of the various opportunities that were on offer. I’m looking forward to future developments!
Thank you so much to Media-10 for arranging the show, to Cristina Liu from Rennie for making the plinths and to the wonderful Sophia Ni who worked tirelessly as my translator.
It goes almost without saying that Marcus Cole and Issy Ogden’s designs for the plinths were a total success and that without Jamie Cole’s enthusiasm and persuasion, I would not have been there – or had such a successful time.
Thank you all.
