Christmas gift guide....

I love meeting new makers on my travels and like to pick up something for myself sometimes along the way. People always comment on pieces which are slightly different and this is part of the joy of buying from makers. Designers who have taken time to design, make and finish beautiful products for people to enjoy and build businesses which supply your local independent shops and galleries! 

I wanted to create my own wee gift guide (with some of own work chucked in) to highlight some of the great gifts you can buy this Christmas from somebody who loves making them! Below is just a wee selection of 5 designers whose work I think is pretty awesome!
