This is my Mexican inspired back piece by Paula Converse:
I also have a fondness for homewares and interiors, and in this blog post I have collated a selection of some of my favourite finds. Tattoos seem to translate well when used in ceramics, fabrics and arty objects for the home, and, it seems, any avid tattoo collector also likes to have their home looking as beautiful as their body art.
Katie Spragg creates beautifully illustrated ceramics that would stand proud in any crockery cabinet. My stand-out pieces are the wonderful collection of mugs she creates featuring animal illustrations. £15
I also love the large ‘African Queen’ plate featuring parakeets and some illustrations of Battersea Park. £25 www.katiespragg.com
Rockett St George is an online interiors shop offering a selection of homewares, art and gifts. Launched in 2006, they now have three warehouses full of wonderful, unique and curious products, which can be explored on their website.
My favourite item is the kitsch Bear Side Table at £125 its a real conversation starter. www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk
Who knew the grandfather clock could look as modern and cheerful as it does with Studio Cloggy? This Dutch-based company offers a contemporary twist on a traditional design, and they do it very well.
With prices starting from £1,377 for a single-colour design, they’re not the cheapest on the market, but they’re worth every penny. www.cloggyclocks.com
