We discuss Studio Hardie, founded by William -  a team of problem solving designer makers that specialise in a diverse variety of unusual high profile design projects including architecture, playgrounds, interiors, furniture, exhibition spaces and public art. What are they working on and how did they start up? 

Over the years William has also developed some incredible designs on Channel 4's Amazing Spaces with George Clarke and visited some truly unique homes and places so we have a good chat about this. I also ask he picks a winner on Shed of the Year with such talent involved.

Chat with Fine Artist Jessica Albarn

February 21, 2021

This week I chat with Fine Artist Jessica Albarn, well known for her insect and animal fine line drawings on paper that are often multi layered. She also produces her work with clay, glass, honey and wax.

How does she create these pieces and what inspired her to become an artist? 

Her commissions include Soho House, V & A and Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

I ask about her Exhibitions and whether even after showing her artwork all over the world - does she still feel first night nerves?

We also discuss her love of bees and the meadow she has developed in Devon to encourage wildlife and in which she created her stop motion film 'Life After Death'.
