The Hare in Winter


Wife and husband team Nicola and Peter are craftspeople of calm yet playful talent. Well they make me calm, and they make me laugh. And they also make beautiful tactile reassuring homewares out of natural materials like linen and wood, with a fair old dose of joyfulness thrown in. The highlight of 2022 was when they agreed to have a permanent presence in my shop (I mean their stuff has a permanent presence, not their persons. It's hard, but I do let them go home occasionally).
