Interview | Maria Bell Photography

My work is probably best summed up as telling stories of people, place and plate; whether that’s a maker in their studio, a producer in the field or a night’s feasting. At the moment I’m living in Brixton, where I’ve been on and off for about five years and spend most of my time in Brockwell park, which I absolutely love but really I still like to tell myself that I live on the Isle of Wight (where I grew up). I try to split my time between the two as I go a bit mad if I’m without the countryside for too long and my family still lives down there so it’s lovely to go back regularly.

Interview | Rebecca Proctor, Modern Craft Works

I make wheel-thrown pottery from my small workshop in North Cornwall. I often work for restaurants, and am lucky to have made tableware for some amazing chefs, but mostly I just love making pots for anyone who enjoys them.  I also have two young kids (Wren 6 & Fred 5) and my husband Andrew is an illustrator/wood turner. We both work from separate sheds in our garden, and work and life is happily very blurred.
