with hand thrown ceramic pendants
I’m a big fan of ceramic lighting, loving the way the natural materials, textures, colour and form add layers of interest to a space. So when Lucy Hogan, owner of Wildcroft Interiors in Witley, Surrey asked me to recommend someone to make a series of bespoke ceramic pendants for a key project I knew we were in for something special!
Catherine has long admired...
the look and feel of modern handcrafted ceramics and was keen to introduce natural clay elements into the design. When I saw the beautiful Calligaris Omnia ceramic dining table and Quartz - Silestone Blanco City worktops sourced by Lucy, their simple and refined modernity immediately brought to mind the work of ceramicist, Sue Ure. Sue launched her own range of handmade ceramic pendant lights in January and I knew she would bring something unique and interesting to the project.
Sue was delighted with the commission and Lucy - who has been known to throw a pot or two herself - was brimming with ideas. Despite being based in France, Sue worked quickly and various colour samples, devised by introducing oxides into her clay mix, were soon crossing the Channel.
