Secondly, I've had my suspicion confirmed. Last night at the opening of Made Brighton I bumped into a fellow blogger, the lovely Lilly Ringlet. She agreed that the quality of work selected was outstanding.
After attending my fourth fair by Tutton and Young I can confirm that although the designers and artists may change the exhibitors are consistently impressive.
Perhaps at this point I should also clarify that I have not received any form of payment to wax lyrical and hopefully the pics below will be good enough to make you also fall in love with Made Brighton 2015 running this weekend.
Rebecca Louise Broad
Delicate, white and looking as fragile as paper the 3D cones Rebecca Louise Broad makes are actually ceramic and were displayed in this simple frame to dramatic effect.

Working locally in Hove, each bag made by designer Wolfram Lohr comes with a birth certificate. The leather felt soft and tactile and I was sold. I turned around and realised the choice didn't end there, it was difficult to miss the brightly coloured wallets, belts and miscellanea also available.
Sue PrykeI loved the milkiness of Sue Pryke's pale blue glaze against terracotta, her tea cups were also alluring with a simplicity of design which was beautiful to behold.
Slate Grey Sea
With a stunning palette of blues and greys Lucy Stentiford has produced an amazing collection of shimmering, seascape inspired lampshades.

I've got quite a few pics from Lara Sparks stall, her embroidery and print mix blended so cleverly that the screenprinting looked deceptively like her more expensive fully embroidered pieces.
It was the sculpture of the striding lady that caught my eye, I loved her forthright motion and asked if I could take a picture of her. Alongside this were various animal and bird sculptures that Jeremy James had made in fired ceramic.
Working from moulds pressed into fabric Sarah Grove has created the most delicate looking ceramics, sections are joined together to make pretty little jugs with personality.
Jonathan RogersI leave you where I began with another photo of the stunning hand blown glass by Jonathan Rogers. Jonathan shared the process that he follows to produce these beautiful objects, sharing where he sources the colours and how to blow coloured glass. It's fascinating stuff.
