This year I will be exhibiting with the Trouping Colour collective at at Clerkenwell Design Week. I will be showing some new work as well as showing Dénouement in the UK for the first time. These pieces will sit alongside work by some of the UK’s newest and most talented makers and designers such as Evan James Design, Anna-Lisa Smith, and Studio 9191. Trouping Colour describes itself as ‘undiscovered talent joining forces to tour different venues, grouped together by a prestigious design thinker who recognises their future stock potential’.
