Architectural Ceramics


Sir Christopher Wren comes to Kettering
During the late seventeenth century, Sir Christopher Wren designed three magnificent buildings in Cambridge, Pembroke and Emmanuel College’s chapels and Trinity College’s library. Visiting my niece as a student there provided me with the opportunity to study these buildings and complete ceramic sculptures based on them for each of her years there.


Literary gifts for book lovers


Louise Verity is the owner of Bookishly and lives in Northamptonshire with her husband and young children.

Bookishly was first established in 2009 as Wall Envy Art and rebranded in 2013. It all started with an antique French dictionary and my grandfather’s set of water colours. Our signature book page prints are still popular but you’ll now find a number of new items thrown in to the mix: personalised star chart prints, book club subscriptions and various stationary pieces to name a few.
