Tea with Sarah Hamilton Prints

Blog1

If you don’t know Sarah from Sarah Hamilton Prints you should, she’s what I’d call a positive energy person who opens her arms and her home with a huge smile. I’m not sure at what point over the last few year, I started to follow Sarah on twitter, but her comments and support for the creative community is endless, as well as creating and producing incredibly beautiful work.

I had the pleasure of visiting her studio last week for tea and cake, she has a wonderful home, full of inspirational ceramics and prints as well as spectacular views, I actually sat on her sofa, whilst Sarah answered the phone just staring at the London skyline. WOW!

Sarah spoke to me about her inspiration, many from holidays, the sea, her background in Scandinavian design. The funny stories and dialogue, which the fish or animals have with one another in each piece. We spoke about scale, and how important it is when enlarging work to concentrate on the fine detail.  All of her pieces are hand drawn, and the hand made mark must be seen, no matter how large the piece are presented. If your free on the 10th or 11th May Sarah will be holding at open house as part of Dulwich Arts Festival, with Mini Moderns and Paul Craig. It will be amazing!!!

Ruth Lyne Glass

I really love meeting the people I find and follow on twitter, its such a wonderful way to meet like minded people. Ruth Lyne is one of those, and I was thrilled to be asked, to photograph a selection of her new work.

Glass is traditionally difficult to photograph and I was a little nervous before Ruth arrived as I was unsure what she was bringing to the studio. Ruth was very relaxed, and didn’t have a set style, which was great as it allowed me the freedom, to throw away the rule book and shoot Ruth’s work how I saw it, with layering of details and textures. Each piece is completely unique and by the end of the process I looked at Ruth more as a painter whose canvas is glass.
