Intrigue Emporium Autumn Show was a hit! We had a whole selection of talented designers exhibiting with us again, and it was great to see some old faces coming back for our second event! There were some really unique and out-there pieces on display at the autumn show, we were so excited to see some of the truly amazing stuff our sellers had to offer. In case you missed it, we got very snap happy with the camera, so here’s a few photos from the event for you to browse.
In his work Peter likes to reflect aspects of his personal interests and experience. As a child hiking in the Slovak mountains, he liked to collect minerals, semi-precious stones, dried leaves and plant cuttings. These things continue to capture his imagination. But he is also inspired by modern architectural shapes and designs. Thanks to the advance of computer technology, and CAD in particular, it is now possible to create geometric structures from complex, nature-inspired facets and curves.
In his glass practice, he likes to mix all of these elements together to produce sculptural pieces using a similar crystalline geometry to that found in nature. His work responds to both nature and modern digital technology. Peter’s work is kiln cast, cold worked and selectively polished. He also uses LED technology to emphasise the geometry of the work and, to enhance the unique optical qualities of the glass. The series of pieces presented here is called “Ghost”. This incorporates a sense of a tipping point and showcases the unique ability of handmade glass to present asymmetrical and yet balanced surfaces.

Frances is a Scottish graduate from ‘The Cass’, London Metropolitan University. She enjoys using mixed media materials within her designs: Wool/ plant fibres/yarns/industrial felt/ metal, upcycling/ recycling and trying to be as ethical as possible.
Frances’ jewellery pieces and objects are inspired by Mud-larking visits to the Thames Foreshore, London. The items she finds on the foreshore could have once been someone’s belongings, they may have once treasured, it could be an item that was discarded, it may even be a piece of metal that has fallen into the River from an old worn structure or it may be as simple as a worn pebble.
Inspirations also come from the surrounding Docks/ Thames buildings and structures as well as the history of the River Thames. She also likes her pieces to be considerate to stimulating the wearers senses, something slightly unusual, a talking point and fun.
Lorna Boyle is an independent jewellery designer and maker from Dublin, Ireland, who lives and works in London. Lorna’s designs are inspired by the decay of our urban landscape. She searches for the beauty in the mundane, focusing especially on cracks in pavements and walls, recreating the negative spaces to make precious what is usually overlooked or unseen.
She combines electroforming with 3D printing and found objects to create unique and beautiful wearable rings, brooches, bangles and neck-pieces.
Lorna graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2014 with First Class Honours in Craft Design, Jewellery and Metalwork. She also received the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland’s Future Makers Innovation Award for her degree show collection and is currently studying an MA in Design at Goldsmiths University.

The designs ebb and flow through the seasons and respond to individual customers wishes with the option of unique bespoke creations.
Zuzana Lalikova is London based textile designer/maker specialising in hand embroidery. Coming from a rich cultural background she found an early interest in traditional embroidery which she was able to develop further through a degree study of Fashion textiles. Interested in mixing traditional techniques with modern materials and vice versa, she creates modern craft pieces ranging in scale from coin purses and clutches, to cushions, to wall tapestries.
Laura Bird is a London based potter and illustrator mainly producing functional ware as well as decorative vessels and vases. All the pieces are created exclusively by the artist with each one being made by hand and hand painted so no two are ever the same. The style is always very playful, often with the use of bright colours and usually featuring an array of interesting characters.
There is a strong emphasis on decoration and the pieces tell a story through the illustrations and patterns used. The whole range is created from stoneware clay making everything extremely durable for daily use and even when unglazed they have the ability to hold water. The philosophy of the work is to produce ceramics that can be used in every day life which contain an element of fun as well as being little pieces of art. Hopefully bringing a smile to someone’s face every time they are used.
