Anja Lubach 

Anja Lubach’s work explores the smooth, translucent and pure material properties of porcelain. Lubach alters the symmetry of her wheel thrown vessels by imprinting them with intricate details taken from religious figurines and from body parts to beautifully haunting effect. Her new work for open studios includes a flared black bowl and a pair of spheres with sinuous twisted interiors.

Kethi Copeland 

Handcrafted at every stage, from on-site drawing to silk-screen printing, Kethi Copeland’s original prints capture the diversity of London’s architecture.

Ellen Mae Williams 

These naturally dyed and hand-painted textile works and linen paintings from Ellen Mae Williams make a unique gift for art lovers and design enthusiasts alike.

Darren Appiagyei 

At Inthegrain, Darren Appiagyei creates bespoke pieces with a wood orientated theme. Every piece is created with an underlying story based on Appiagyei’s personal experience. In his series of pyrographic vessels, Appiagyei uses a mark burning technique to very subtly expose the transition of tone in the grain of locally sourced wood to enhance its natural elements.
