Days Out in Brighton: Made Brighton 2015, Designers and Makers Fair

A few things I'd like to say straight up, first, I've included more photos this time because in the past I've felt that I haven't included enough pictures to do the Tutton and Young events I've attended justice.

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.

Wolfram Lohr


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 Pryke

I 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.

With a stunning palette of blues and greys Lucy Stentiford has produced an amazing collection of shimmering, seascape inspired lampshades.

Lara Sparks


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.

Jeremy James


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.

Sarah Grove


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 Rogers

I 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.

  1. There's some gorgeous pieces here. I love finding gems like these. It's nice to have real statement pieces. I think the Lara Sparks pieces are my favourite - so clever. The blow glass is pretty impressive too. I've seen that being done in person and it's amazing.
