Its all in the detail

The design of this madras is very close to AUTHOR's heart. Using motifs from the grounds of AUTHOR's Georgian manse headquarters, textile designer, Iona Crawford, has incorporated cherubs from the nearby church into the design of this madras. The chubby, plump cheeks of the cherubic face is repeated throughout the design have an emotional connection - reminds you of home.

A carved, lichen covered, centuries old head stone sculpture that has been translated into a soft, translucent, light, airy contemporary design that by no means is threatening or scary. Bespoke just for us makes it all the more interesting and special.

What our customers say...

I ordered a gorgeous pinch bowl for a girlfriends 40th and it arrived as promised; beautiful wrapped with a lovely personalised note and information on the piece and who made it. Everything was of such high quality and elegantly put together….my friend absolutely loved it and really appreciated the effort I had gone to. I didn't tell her it wasn’t quite all done by me!
