Heal’s Modern Craft Club

Now in its third year, Heal’s Modern Craft Market returns bigger and better than ever to the Tottenham Court Road store with an extended run from 7 March to 23 April 2016. Celebrating the best in contemporary crafts, the event provides a platform for the artisans of the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland, an extension of the Great Heal’s Bodging Race, plus live workshops, demos and talks showcasing materials from leather to stone. Here are a few of the crafters involved.

We were transfixed by Yuta Segawa’s pieces at LDF where he presented his tiny pots in a spectrum of colours- we even bought a few! He was born in Japan and now makes in Lewisham, London. His miniature pots retail for £15 or £20. Each piece is unique and handmade in London.

Andrew Ludick’s work has slowly evolved towards forms that illustrate the natural properties of clay and the processes he uses to create them. The building of these forms involves coiling and pinching the clay to create vases, bowls and various other shapes.  After the form is built it is decorated with complementary shapes and patterns, before being covered in a clear transparent glaze that serves to deepen the colours and to seal the clay for functionality.
