Love #6 – Piers Saxby Candy

Hugely talented and innovative, we first met Piers in his workshop several years ago now, where he showed us how he creates and crafts his beautiful designs. We particularly love his Jelly lamps which include English oak, hand-forged metal and plaster casts taken from vintage jelly moulds.
