Hi guys, for those of you interested I wanted to share a quick close up of this year’s Plant Pot exhibition, curated by me and housed upstairs at SMUG for London Design Festival as part of the Islington Design District.

 

Plant Pot is a collection of 12 one-off pots designed and made by friends of SMUG. I commission each designer to produce a pot using any material of their choice. The only guidelines being that it must fit on a 12cm deep shelf and hold a plant.

 

This year marks the third (and probably final) year of the show. I have loved cherry picking designers to work with, planting and curating the show. It also remains the most instagrammed project we’ve ever produced here at SMUG. It’s been a big success and really well received each year so thank you so much for your interest in it and for your shares of it in it’s various incarnations over the years. A huge special thanks goes out the 12 designers who took part for the 2017 show.

 

The designers this year are : Make & Matter, Origami Est, Forest & Found, Benjamin Craven. Rosie Drake-Knight, All The Ways To Say, The Lovely Drawer, FreddiedeLanka, Daniel Gleadall, Lizzie Scarlett Towndorw, Earl of East London and Lizzie Evans.

 

Each pot is shown below in order from left to right, top to bottom (as the designers names are listed above). Take a look and let me know your favourite. You can find the instagram handles for every designer tagged in the group shot on my instagram feed @ifeelsmug

 

I look forward to sharing a new group show with you next year that’s a little different. Thanks for reading, Lizzie :)
