Issue 14

The Material Issue interrogates the raw ingredients of the designer-maker: from legendary furniture maker John Makepeace to industrial designer Bodo Sperlein, blacksmith Alex Pole, Peter Layton, founder of London Glassblowing, quilt expert Jessica Ogden, jeweler-turned-product designer Lara Bohinc and Christoper Sharp, co-founder of the Rug Company. Elsewhere, we speak to esteemed gallerist Sarah Myerscough on the subject of elevating craft to art, fashion illustrator Richard Haines, designer Faye Toogood and Emily Johnson of ceramics firm 1882 Ltd – and learn a few lessons from some of the leading lights of the British garment manufacturing revival.
