How gorgeous are these mugs from a new collection by ceramics supremo Harley Boden. These exquisite bold designs are a bit of a departure from his bird ceramics dating back several years ago, but the craftsmanship and quality remain the same. I think these would be a wonderful present for father’s day. Get yours from www.harleyboden.com.

Fran Giffard

I’ve always had a fondness for birds; I’ll admit, I could very easily become a twitcher. BUT, there has been a recurrent flock of bird memes flapping about in the decorative arts of late. In amongst all of this it’s comforting to know that there is good work on the market featuring birds – I especially loved the wallpaper designs of singer Edwyn Collins, and more recently I was instantly captivated by these beautiful watercolour drawings by Fran Giffard. Giffard’s work has a lovely transient quality due to the fact that she draws and paints directly into her Moleskin notebooks and diaries, often alongside shopping and to-do lists. You can tell that she adores her subject matter; her bird pictures are formed lovingly from close observation; but although she has a realist style, traditional subject matter and uses watercolour, her work is still very contemporary and fresh. Displayed collectively these pieces look even more stunning. Check out more of Fran’s work at www.frangiffard.com.

Kate Banazi

Gas Art is a great destination for quality hand picked art, and I’m pleased to see the addition of Kate Banazi to their selection of represented artists. Banazi is an increasingly recognisable name; her hand printed serigraph prints are finding their way to collectors’ homes across the world. Her inventive use of colour and geometric position to create modern day op-art inspired prints work wonderfully in modern interiors.

Gas Art have a selection of 20 unique works available to purchase and to view at their London workspace. They also make home or office visits in the London area.

To receive a PDF catalogue to preview these works on paper before they go online please contact Gas Art by email at art@gasart.co.uk.
