We meet The Ceramic Magpie, plus Wonder and Rah
Have you come across the Ceramic Magpie yet? Otherwise known as Katie Robbins, she creates the prettiest, free form porcelain vessels and jewellery, all inspired by the natural world. Team Mollie have been swooning over her handmade ceramics for some time, so we were pretty excited to sit down with her for a cuppa and a chat (plus a cheeky peek at her studio).
Prepare for lots of interiors inspo too, as we tour the home of designer Natalie Cardew. The face behind Wonder and Rah has recreated all the vibrancy of her contemporary prints company in her new family home. It’s bright, beautiful and modern, with a range of eclectic finds – making it the ideal location for her brand’s photoshoots.
