Mimi de Biarritz

Welcome to our wonderful world of surreal and eccentric hats by talented artist Mimi de Biarritz. 

This fantastical exhibition features twenty extraordinary hats. Each piece is one of a kind and handmade from papier-mâché, cardboard and found objects from matadors to fishing gnomes.

Much more than an accessory, these pieces will add life and character to any room and can be exhibited as sculptures in your home.

The exhibition is on at Soho Hotel until the 25th May. 

All sold artworks will be available for collection or delivery from the 2nd of August.

 

Celia Lindsell

TOTEM is a new sculpture collection by Celia.  As a sculptor Celia found immense creative energy taking stone and sculpting a form to represent an idea, a feeling or a memory in her life. TOTEM  is a continuation of this creative journey.

TOTEM represents the journey of past, present and future in a convergence of mysteries. Celia works with the wonder of crystal gemstones and carved clay forms creating sculpture of vertical harmony grounded through their wooden plinths.

 

Colin Millington

Working with two-ply pure wool, using mostly simple long and short stitch, sometimes chain stitch, adding in details with silk and occasionally glass beads. 

Motifs are always nautical, with coastlines, compasses and flags – and there’s at least one ship in every picture. Collin uses memories of his time in the merchant navy – sailing the world from North and South America to Panama, Africa, India, Japan and Australia – and as a coastguard, watching how the sea meets the shore

 
 

Laurance Simon

Inspired by the natural world, animals and colour, Laurance Simon's sculptures, vessels, candelabras and mirrors are filled with wondrous imagination.

Laurance Simon shows the endless possibilities of clay and its unique ability to tell stories in a three dimensional form. 

Her work borrows from surrealism and the absurd while maintaining a whimsical element of familiarity.

 

Robina Jack

Robina Jack’s main medium is intricately patterned ceramics and paintings on found wood. Through her work, you will find a distinctive aesthetic which celebrates nature, animals, horses and ships with a naïve touch in her brushstrokes that link very closely to her childhood spent in Oxfordshire.

 

Melissa White

Here at the Kit Kemp Design Studio, it is no secret that we are big admirers of Melissa White and her work. She is a close friend and we are continually inspired by her bespoke pieces for domestic, commercial and heritage interiors.

Melissa’s signature style is imbued with a historic, artisanal and painterly feel. Her paintwork is often finished with ageing and distressing to distance it from the new and the mass produced.
